Happy 2011 everyone!

Hi there!
Did you all have a lovely Christmas? I wonder how many people other than us watched Avatar a few times over Christmas! We saw it in 3D at the cinema but every time you watch it you find something new that you missed the last time, definately one of my favourite films.
Well, Happy 2011 everyone! I wish you all a fantastic year ahead filled with plenty of love, good health and happiness. I'm hoping 2011 is better than 2010, it seemed to be a year of disappointment! Lol!

Just before 2010 ended, one of my colleagues and friend from university left work, so I thought I'd share the leaving card I made for her with you all today.
Her favourite colours are pink and purple, so it's a very girly colour scheme!

I've used "farewell Tilda" (what could be more appropriate?!) and stood her in front of the "open gate" which I've decoupaged on the circle like I did on one of the earlier challenge cards for a CI challenge. I found a doily which I think I've picked up somewhere while eating out (naughty I know!) and thought this might be nice behind. 

Tilda and the background are coloured with distress inks. There's crackle glaze on her boots and stickles on her pocket, hankie and her tear, as well as beneath her feet. I've layered the decoupaged flowers in front of her for added depth and put small pearls in some of the flower centres.

The tassle pulls out a blank square piece of card so everyone at work could sign it for the extra personal touch.

The tag is a doohickey die with pearl string threaded through. The sentiment is a stamp from a free pack on a docrafts magazine, and I added a small rose from wild orchid crafts. The larger sentiment is printed from my computer and cut out with a nellie snellen die.

The flower embellishments and leaves are from wild orchid crafts.

I really hope she liked this one, I wasn't sure if it was a bit fussy!
Take care everyone and have a fab week, see you Wednesday for a CI challenge!
