Digital Tuesday #18/ASFOS #63

retirement card (2)

retirement card (close up)

This card is my entry for this week’s digital tuesday challenge which is ‘bling’ and also the a spoonfull of sugar challenge which is ‘floral fantasy’.  I made this card a little while ago for a friend at work to give to her friend who was a teacher and obviously was retiring.  Now you may wonder why the zebra is on there but that was a personal request and is a private job between the two friends!!  Anyway onto the card.  I used an image by the greeting farm called ‘teacher anya’ and coloured her with my promarkers.  I cut out the apple twice and added the second apple with a foam pad for a 3d effect.  The school books image is a freebie digital image from lindsay weirich and I again coloured the image with my promarkers.  The zebra was a freebie image that I found on google and I just coloured the grass in!  The gorgeous paper is cosmo cricket and the plain cs is from the papermill shop.  The flowers were cut with the large and medium retro flower punches and the bling is supplied with brads by PM.  The sentiment was created on the pc (and again was a personal request by the lady that ordered the card).  The card size is an A4 (A3 folded in half) although it’s difficult to tell in the pic.  Thanks for stopping by today and for all the lovely comments and interest in my candy.  Keep spreading the word lol!

Great card, I wouldn't know where to start with an A4 size! You'll have everyone guessing about the zebra now! Nicki, xx
