Paper Smooches: May 2017 challenge - Flowers

"Now life starts"...

Two of my colleagues at work are retiring shortly and I was asked to make them a card. One colleague is a medical secretary who likes bingo, the other one is a nurse who likes travelling and motorbikes. I was planning on making the cards in the same style but as I went along I changed a few things.
I used a really pretty flower die from Paper Smooches and decided to play along in the May challenge of Paper Smooches.

To the medical secretary I found a really nice paper with typewriters - it is sooo pretty, but unfortunately I don't know the brand. There are gold foiled accents on the paper and I found some kind of self adhesive gold foil from which I die-cutted the flower. The sentiment is stamped with an alphabet from Concord & 9th. Love it - I don't have to write the sentiments any longer! This colleague also likes bingo so I made a background with a bingo stamp.

To the nurse I found a paper with a travelling theme. Instead of die-cutting a circle I used a manilla tag. She also loves motorbikes and inside the card and outside the envelope I have used a washi tape which looks like a highway! So clever! I'm a bit proud of myself, actually! 😉
