Sorry You're Leaving

Good afternoon everyone.  Hope you are all enjoying your Saturday.  I must admit the weather here in the West Mids is not too bad, sunny at the moment too.
Today's post was made for a colleague who was leaving for pastures new.  The card was an 8x8 so we could all put our best wishes inside.
I started with the usual base white card followed by some beautiful brown pearlescent card and then matted on that was the backing paper which was from my crafty stash.  The image is a swalk stamp as you will have guessed coloured in with spectrum noirs.  Die cut out using a spellbinder and matted onto some more brown card.  I have distress inked around the edges too.  The name is stamped using plain alphabet stamps from Dimension Stamps.  I have stamped and embossed them onto the backing paper and them cut them out.  They have been placed onto a piece of embossed white card.  The embossing folder I used for that is a bark one.  As you will see I have also distress inked around the edges of that.
Well that's it for today folks.  Thank you for stopping by and take care.
