One of my colleagues finished up at work recently, as her position was made redundant.聽 I have worked closely with her for quite a few years, and I’m very sad to see her leave 馃檨

She has commented before that I usually make her cards with ‘island colours’ (she is from Fiji), so I wanted to do something different this time.聽 I love the botanical image over the grid pattern, and I went for a sepia colour scheme this time.

Offcut of card sponged with butterscotch ink, and stamped with honeycomb pattern from Stampingon elements cube.聽 Indigo Blue quote stamped onto the offcut in Vintage Photo ink, which was also edged in Vintage photo then layered onto a patterned piece of paper.聽 Brown card folded to A6 size, torn piece of ‘Art of Life’ paper from Kaisercraft edged with Vintage Photo ink and mounted onto card.聽 Stamped quote layered onto base card, and then flower and gem added to the lower left corner.

The inside was simple, just a torn piece of paper edge in ink for writing on, and the left over piece of grid paper from the front image added on the upper panel for some visual interest.
