Barb: GoodBye

This card was designed for a special Children's Librarian who is about to retire and will certainly be missed. She was such a help to me throughout my career. I wish her the best as the next chapter in her life unfolds. This also fit the criteria for two challenges: Housemouse challenge and abc challenge-V is for vintage.

Recipe: Stamp: House Mouse
              Ink: Ranger distressing ink
              Sentiment: computer generated
              Patterened Paper: from my stash, the lace is vintage cut from a hanky, the button is also vintage.
                                              It is difficult to see in the picture but I layered a few blades of grass and a tiny
                                              flower, in the front middle, to give it some dimension.
I distressed the paper before stamping with Ranger ink then stamped and colored with Prisma pencils. I also distressed the edges of the House Mouse layers.
