A Retirement Card

A colleague at school is retiring at the end of term, and given the number of tantrums and sullen children she's dealt with over the years, one of Mo's Terrible Twos seemed like the perfect image.


I coloured her with Promarkers, and used paper from Papermania and used a new (to me) Martha Stewart border punch and my nesties. I finished the card with a flower and some sticky gems from the local pound shop. 

I'm entering it for the following challenges:  Sketch and Stash, and Mo's challenge No. 37, which is an 'anything goes' this week.
