Good Luck

A card made for a work colleague...


I decided to use dandelion stem die from Poppy Stamps because when you blow the clocks you make new wishes, appropriate for starting a new adventure.


I heat embossed two dandelions three times with yellow embossing powder and used the second one for the fly away clocks.

The frame is from Pretty Pink Posh and cut three times, stacked for dimension and adhered to the base card... wonky!


The sentiment was cut once in white to give a dry embossed look.

  2. You always design the most beautiful, thoughtful CAS cards, and this is just stunning! I love the golden dandelions with the floating bits, and I was certain the sentiment was embossed until I read your description! Wow! The framework is just perfect for this image and your co-worker will be so happy to receive this I'm sure! One thing for certain - people come and go from our lives all the time! This is a beautiful send-off!
