I have made this card for a friend/colleague who is leaving work in a couple of weeks time.  It's a bit of a sad time as three of us are leaving over the next fortnight for various reasons.  I am the first to go as I am retiring on Friday and the other two go the following week.  I know I shall miss everyone, but, looking on the bright side, I shall have more time to craft!!!

Anyway, onto my card.  I have followed the great sketch and used six different patterened papers on the various layers and punched flowers.  All of these gorgeous digi papers are from the new collection at Nitwits called 'Petal Fresh'.  They are so beautiful I shall use them over and over again!  The lovely image has been coloured with promarkers and chalk.  The sentiment has been stamped onto a banner and placed across a die-cut doily.  The butterfly has been punched.  A few gems finishes the card.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
