A card for a friend's farewell

Hello sweet blogging buddies,

I am a bit sentimental as one of my dear friends is leaving Jakarta for Vietnam since her husband is relocating. She was one of the first few ladies I met when we moved to Indonesia some six years ago and we hit it off instantly. Even though we would have liked to see each other more often than we did, it was always easy to feel comfortable in her company.

So here is a card I made for her in minutes this morning... the sentiment I thought was very apt. Sorry I cannot recall the name of the rubber stamp. The green flourishes are from a larger spellbinder die that I picked up at Hobby Craft in London. It took me forever to die cut it. I have randomly cut it into two and stuck it on the top and bottom of the card. The flowers have been cut from a lace and I have stuck matching confetti in the centres. 

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Wish you a pleasant weekend.

The sentiment is perfect for your friend, Monica. I am sorry she is leaving. Now you need to install free skype on your computer so you can still talk with her or at least have video messaging! Easy and fun - and free. Monica, the colors on your card are so pretty. Yellow is the color for friendship - just perfect with this bittersweet greeting. hugs, de

So pretty, Monica. I see you don't waste any scrap. I saved the die cut frames but in the end they always ended up in the recycle trash.
