You'll be missed

Hello there crafters!
It's unbelievable that a quarter of the year is gone already, don't you think? Anyway, the other week I needed a card for a colleague of mine who decided to quit because she had found a better job.
Although it was a good-bye card, I wanted something whimsical and merry and therefore I decided to use one of my favourite Penny Black stamps, the bunch of ducks. I stamped the image twice using the masking technique and cut it out with my MFT stitched ovals die, then matted it on a scalloped oval die-cut (Spellbinders). The pull tab is also a die from Spellbinders, while the faux-crochet border behind the image is a MFT border die - lots of die cutting here!! The image was coloured with my Copics and the sentiment computer-generated.
I resolved to put together a criss-cross card, as it's so impressive and at the same time easy to make. I added some ribbon from my stash and printed out the digital papers - the orange and lime green colours were perfect for my ducks! A triplet of matching blings et voilĂ , the card was finished. Love how it turned out, so cute!!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Trees or nature

Penny Black and more - Dies and punches

Have a nice evening and thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Vittoria
