A little note...

I was asked a few weeks back to make a card for a friend's co-worker who is retiring this week.  Since the card will be hand delivered, I was able to add a little bit of dimension...and it was so much fun!
My image was coloured back in November and is a Lily of the Valley image that my friend Crystal sent me back in the early fall. 

I used The Sweet Stop's Sketch #92 for my card...you should check it out, it's a great sketch!  Instead of a  bow, I used a little bit of ribbon and the layered a Prima Flower and a button.  I used a small piece of embroidery floss (from my cross-stitching stash) and a glue dot to attach the charm behind the flower and let it hang a little bit. 

I am also going to enter my card over at PaperPlay Challenges where they are looking for layers.
