Retirement request

Good evening all.

I'm so busy with card orders at the moment and have two craft fairs this weekend too 
Oh dear think I need to keep making lol..

Here is a card I made for a special order.,

I was asked to make a retirement card for a lady who likes a glass of Vodka or two.. And for it to include little people wearing orange hats and crying (these representing her work collegues who are upset she is leaving) 

I hope you like what I can up with.

Image is from bugaboo coloured with promarkers, I added glossy accents to her glasses and bottles.
The DPs on this card are from one of the DCWV. I doodled the border panel at the bottom with black fineliner and orange promarker for their hats.
I embellished with ribbon, pearls and flowers from my stash
The sentiment I printed from the computer 


Thanks for visiting my bit of blog land.
Hugs Kelly
