My card for today is - well - BRIGHT LOL. I needed a card for a work colleague who has been off work for a couple of months sick and retires this week. I didn't want to have a retiring card as he is only mid fifties and as he is known in work as a moaner! I decided to cheer him up! He had worked in our office even though he was clinical, so I always told him to cheer up and we had a lot of fun banter between us. We are going to a "do" this week, so got this ready for him. I know he will love it. Hope you do too.
The image is Dancing Cactus by Elizabeth Dulemba, the colourful papers are from a digi kit Hot air balloons by Craftastical and perfect I thought for the Mexican theme with their bright colours. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. "Celebration" because he is retiring! I coloured the image in PS and placed all the papers then printed all the papers onto the card and printed the image out separately, cut it out then placed it onto 3D stickers to raise it. I had a big pack of buttons from Tesco for just £2.99 and they matched the colours so added them. (I have checked again, they are straight!) Also the obligatory glitter dust for the image.
