a teaching colleague of mine is retiring this year and i offered to make her a farewell card
this is what i came up with
the background paper is presto patterns and i have sponged some red, grey and gold ink to it
you can see the background better here when i show it in a better light
i added some vintage lace ribbon, some beaded pearls and a ribbon flower to the side.
the wooden mannequin was inked in black (with a touch of gold) and i added some red and white pearls to it.
the sentiment was done using the teeny tiny sentiments set-man oh man is that set useful!!!
with it being a group card i needed to have enough space on the inside for people to sign it.
so i added some 'shelves' with tags on them for people to pull out and sign
on the tags i used some plain black stain ribbon and stamped a squiggle from tiny tags in gold.
hope this special teacher likes her special card
