A card for my district commissioner's retirement

Evening all! Well its been a very busy day - and the sun has been shining here in Hornby! Haven't we been lucky? After a 4 and a half mile run (which killed me - three weeks off is not a good idea!!!) I did gardening club at my daughter's school then went and put my scarecrow on display at the Wray scarecrow festival. Finally I picked my daughter up from school and my youngest from nursery! Now they are asleep - yipee!

Anyway - I did get chance to nip into the attic and make a card for the retirement of my district commissioner from her post.

Gill's been the District Commissioner for a number of years so I thought I'd be cheeky and use a black and white image on the card! Most of the backing materials and others used come from the freebie from this months hunkydory magazine. The ribbon and twine are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Divas by design: Buttons and Bows
Paperplay Challenges: Monochrome and ribbon
Aud Sentiments: Anything goes
Little Claire: Doing the rounds.

I think that's all for now - nighty night - sleep tight!
