Best Wishes Janet!

This card was made for a great person we've come to know during the past year who's leaving her job to return working in NYC. She's a chef & butcher (among other talents) who works at the farm where we buy pastured meat & eggs. She's always been such a friendly and caring person, and I wanted to let her know how much she's meant to us, so this one's for her!
I used my favorite go-to Hero Arts flower stamp set to make the layered flower and leaves. I used Melon Mambo and PTI New Leaf card stock and heat embossed the images with clear detail ep after stamping with Versafine Onyx black ink. The sentiment is by SU! and the pearls are from PizzazzAplenty. The inside says "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams."

Since the code word for this week's Addicted to CAS #11 is "flower" I'm entering this into that challenge.



Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Carol

Carol, the Melon Mambo against that green is just stunning. This card is beautiful, simple and to the point and I'm sure she will be thrilled with it. It looks like Pa's lost will be NY's big gain. It's so nice to have sweet people, caring in our daily lives, I'm sorry you will be losing one of them from your life. I'm sure she loved seeing you and hubby as much as you two liked seeing her. Enjoy this Sunday.

All of those layers are wonderful! The colors that you chose make the flower just pop off of your white card. I love it! Thanks for playing at ATCAS. :)
