Congratulations... New Position

Lots of friends at John's school are retiring this year. Great chance to make some fun cards! And a new position for another congratulations card!

Here's the overview...

Another look...

Now here's a closer look...

This is the first congratulations card that I made. The principal of the school I retired from has just accepted another position. I am so excited for her! It will be a position that she will mold to fit, not try to fit into a past role. She will be so great at it... a K-12 school and she will just thrive! Congratulations, Principal Sarah!

Using my new PTI Flower Favorites set, the card base is white with a yellow layer under the top panel. PTI Super Swoosh die in black glued over the card layers. I love the way it extends across all the layers.

Using Wink of Stella gave great glitter to the iris! The butterfly also comes from the stamp set, although I had to fussy cut it and then attach it to the card. The fun part was a black thread tied as the body with antennae extending and the whole thing attached with foam to really pop off the card.

The colors are SU Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango, Gumball Green and Wild Wasabi. The edges of the top layer were softened by sponging Distress colors blue for the sky and green below.

Love this stamp set... Makes such a fun card!
