Thank You Mentor

My daughter asked me to make a thank you card for the community midwife who has mentored her during her midwifery training.

I used a digital version of Carta Bella Beautiful Moments papers, which I used to fill  shapes in the Silhouette electronic cutting machine and then print and cut. The advantage of using the Silhouette Studio software is that you can scale the patterns - I used the same pattern on the 'thank you' and the bunting, but scaled it larger on the bunting. I outlined everything with a dusky pink marker.

I'd like to enter:
