Retirement

My second card today is a CAS card for an ex-colleague who is retiring this week, after many years as a Teaching Assistant and Dinner Lady in the school where I used to be a teacher.
The embossing folder I used for the background is an old Papermania one, I think. I added a few small punched hearts to the biggest heart flowers.  The butterflies are double layered in lilac and white. The top white butterflies are embossed with a Swiss Dots embossing folder and just attached by the bodies to make the wings stand out.  I finished them off with purple gems.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  6. Perfect EF for a retirement card (along the thoughts of stop & smell the roses, hmm?) The tiny embedded white hearts draws the eye right in to look more closely at the embossing pattern, as does the white flitting butterflies against this so pretty background color. TFS & Hugs
