Congratulations

Recently we got a letter saying our doctor of 10 years is retiring.  We both really like her, but thankfully our previous doctor agreed to take us. She had left to spend more time with her young kids, but has been back for a few years now.  I have one last appointment with our current doctor & made a card for her.  
The beautiful Stamplorations butterflies were stamped using Hero Arts ombre red to pink ink pad.  I heavily spritzed the panel with Perfect Pearls--gorgeous shimmer in real life!  
This is my second card using the great sketch at Fusion.  Hero Arts ombre sequins sent by my blogging friend, Betty, provide embellishment.  Once again I used my favorite black ink, Brilliance Graphite Black, for the sentiment from Altenew which is mounted with foam tape.  I'm also entering 3 challenges at Stamplorations: Theme & Sketch (theme only), Things with Wings Blog Hop & Never-ending Anything Goes and Time Out. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

This is lovely and I know she will appreciate this. I have now retired two doctors. The one I have now is very young so hopefully he will be around for a while!

Love the vibrant colour of these butterflies and their shimmer as they float across the page. I can be nerve wracking to change Dr. so I hope it all goes well for you.
