Two very different leaving cards...

 I was asked to make a couple of cards for people leaving work.  They are both A4 and I use Anita's A4 card packs and it was all mounted on Mirri card.
The first is a stamp used called New Heights which is apt for the type of card.  I used A4 gorjuss girl paper and ribbon.  The Good Luck stamp is from Sheena Douglas Mystery sets and I used pearls from my stash.  The butterfly stamp is also from the New Heights stamp set.

The gorjuss girl was coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils and cut by hand.

The second card I also coloured and is a maternity leaving card.

I used an image that I know I purchased and I'd love to share where from but I cannot remember and despite spending 20 mins on google and pininterest I still have no idea!  If anyone knows please let me know! It is signed!
The word stamp was a free indigo blue stamp free in a magazine.

The pink and green papers are American Crafts 12x12 papers which have been embossed and the bird paper is Stampin Up. The main image and word stamp were cut with spellbinder dies.

The ribbon, twine and green button are from Hobbycraft and the flowers are Petaloo Love. The metal pearls are from my local craft shop. Again the digi stamp was coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and pencils.

Next week I would have been at the beginning of September for my makes as I am trying to catch up in order, but I've finally been making Christmas cards so will share those instead!
