Sorry you're leaving...

Please excuse the horrendously rubbish photos! They were taken at still yet to find a good way to take photos in the evening without them looking awful! I made this card for my Mum's friend at work (who I used to also babysit for) who is leaving to go and work at another school. I was under a bit of pressure with this one as it was for my Mum so it took a bit of work to get it right! First of all had to get the rest of the team at work to pick out colours and then I had to check with my Mum before I stuck things down to make sure she was happy with it! I think it worked quite well in the end - like these colours together.

I made the little paper bouquet myself out of paper and embellished it with fab Smooch accent ink once I got the shape right.
