Tilda's off on her travels....

Evening Peeps!
Hope you're all enjoying New Year's Eve. For the past 2 days.....it feels like longer but I'm pretty sure I've only been making this for the last 2 days! It is a retirement card for a lady I worked with. We work at a Travel Agents so I thought all these Bon Voyage Tilda's were perfect!

I've used card from the Paper Mill, white card is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dot's embossing folder, pink spotty Doodlebug paper & Martha Stewart punch, on the 1st panel it says "Final Call for the last remaining passenger travelling to retirement... " Cabin Crew Tilda & her plane have been colored with Pro Markers & Diamond stickles have been added to EVERYWHERE along with some jewels from my stash.

On the 2ND panel I used Pink Parfait papers from Forever Friends, ribbon & jewels from my stash, Martha Stewart doily edge punch & Tilda in a rush has been colored with pro markers, I put "Don't rush and forget us" along with a ticket.
And on the last panel I have used Doodlebug spotty & stripe paper Swiss dots embossed white card & Farewell Tilda with "Goodbye Edith" - more jewels & Diamond Stickles added.....

Is it OK...........Edith is a lovely lady & I wanted a special card for her, honest will it do???
OK I'm off to watch the 2ND episode of Corrie - Gosh I cant wait for Tracy Barlow to get knocked out - as it's only fiction I'm allowed to wish violence on her!!!!
