Janet's Retirement Card

We have a lot of people retiring at my work. I have been asked to make card for all of them. I make the cards like a book with several pages to give lots of room for people to write and sign. This card was made for Janet. I try to make each card a with something that reminds us of that person. Janet is super funny and has an amazing, spunky personality. She also loves to shop at LW (Liquidation World). Sorry about the bad photo I took the picture at work with my phone right before I gave it to her. 

The card is made to be a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 " card. The base is made from Early Espresso. The pattern paper is from one of my many 6x6 paper packs. The stamp and sentiment are both from Stamping Bella. I coloured the girl with my Copics and paper pieces the dress and the bag using paper from the same paper pack. The Congrats is made with a die cut from Quick Qutz that I found in my stash. The Buttons are from Stampin' Up.
