A Fond Farewell

Happy Tuesday! Today I have a card for a very special person, but one that I am sad that I have to make. This card is for my boss whom I love working for who is leaving the company and moving out of state. He will definitely be missed in our office and company-wide. This card will be signed by everyone at work, and hopefully I did the occasion justice. I do know that he appreciates the cards I make him because he has saved each one on his bulletin board.
I used Unity's Kit of the Month from November 08 called Enjoy Your Story....Laugh. I honestly have not used this kit very much but it is so much fun to dig into past kits and find new treasures that catch my eye. I thought this little car and the sentiment fit the occasion since he is moving on the other side of the country. On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from Unity's Simply Said kit that says, "May All Your Dreams Come True."
I stamped the images and colored them with my Prismacolor Pencils (my new stamping love) and then pieces them onto Sage Shadow paper.

I am hoping this card is appropriate since I don't make many masculine cards, and I don't make many for this sort of occasion. I would love to know what you think!

Stamps: Unity Enjoy Your Stories...Laugh, Simply Said (inside)
Paper: SU: Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow, Retired DSP; PTI White
Ink: Versafine Onyx, Black Stazon
Accessories: Aged Copper hardware, Dimensionals, Prismacolor Pencils
Thanks for stopping by!
