FAREWELL CARD...

One of my co-workers has moved on to another adventure in her life. She will be missed by many at the office. I wanted to make the farewell card for her, but it turns out that a lot of people wanted to sign the card, so I decided to make it in a book form so I made the cover on 8-1/2 x 11 paper. She loves going to the beach, so I decided to make it a beach-themed card, and wanted to use her favorite color ... blue.

I used my Sizzix Palm Tree that I bought from J's Knicknacks last week. I added dew drops and a rhinestone for coconuts. I also used my Quikutz beach chair, umbrella and rubber slippers to add a little extra to the scene. The last part is a Sun that I just cut out and made some "rays of sunshine" and finished it off by embelishing the sand with dew drops to give it a little different effect.

Here's a closeup of the Coconut tree. I used pop dots for the top portion of the tree to give it some dimension.

I hope you like the card. I had lots of FUN creating it. Thanks for checking out my blog and talk to you again real soon. TAKE CARE!
