Good Luck !

I made this card for a good friend who has recently left work. She is a very special lady who has given me a lot of support so I will miss her.

The background was made using a stamp from the Stampin' Up set called Baroque Motif and the the flower stamp is from an Inkadinkado set. I've stamped them using Coffee Archival ink and then blended Wild Honey DI over it. The vertical panel and the flower are made from the Tim Holtz Kraft Resist stack. The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz stamp set called Stuff to Say and I've stamped it onto a scrap piece I had left over from the water and alcohol ink technique. It's been cut out using Labels 18 Nestabilities and mounted onto brown card.

The border punch is a Martha Stewart and the swirl is a Marianne Creatable die. The flower was made using the Tattered Florals Tim Holtz die and the brad is a Marah Johnson.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
