Another Goodbye Card

Stopping by today to share another retirement card for a co-worker.  I once again returned to the Heartfelt Creations Once Upon a Time collection to make this card special.  Here's the details of the card:
  • All the patterned papers are Heartfelt Creations Once Upon a Time collection.  I fussy cut the green swirl out of a piece of the patterned paper.  
  • The flowers are Arianna Blooms which I've clear embossed onto mauve cardstock and then die cut.  I used the paper shaping technique featured in this video and then finished them with a pearl accent.  
  • The sentiments are the tags that come in the paper pack which I matched with green pattern paper leaves die cut using the Arianna Lace die.
  • A white cardstock die cut using my Raindrops on Roses die creates the medallion backdrop for the flowers.  
  • I used my distressing tool to nick the paper in strategic locations around the layers.  I really like this look as it adds a bit of interest without a lot of effort.
This card was for a different Barb who also spent several decades at my company.  I am hoping this finds her happily sipping a cocktail!

I've entered this card into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge: Anything Lady/Girly and the Shabby Tea Room's challenge: Pop of Pink.  I also linked up with Word Art Wednesday's Challenge #173: Anything Goes.  Come join the fun or just stop by to see some wonderful inspiration.
