The lovely receptionist at work recently went on maternity leave, and our team gave her a farewell morning tea.  This is the card I made for her.

A4 Pink cardstock folded to A5 size, front edge punched with lace punch border.  Kaisercraft pattened paper (Bonjour Paris collection), right edge trimmed off, then layered on gold paper.  Stampington solid butterfly stamped in Victorian Velvet distress ink, then overstamped with Anna Griffin butterfly.  Layered on pink cardstock on an angle.  White flower swiped with Victorian Velvet ink, adhered to card in corner, then three pink pearls added to the centre.  The inside was white parchement paper that was torn on the edges, swiped with Victorian Velvet ink, and ‘Congratulations’ (PSX stamp) on the right side.
