Green, Yellow, and a big button

Hello everyone,

My son comes home from school today and tells me one of his helper teachers is leaving.  He needs a goodbye card stat.  So I rushed to put one together for him.

I kept it pretty CAS.  The background was made with a border stamp by BasicGrey (Crumpets set).  I inked the stamp with Yoyo Yellow ink (Stampin Up!) and stamped it three times, reinked it and stamped the next three lines and so on.  I was really pleased with the outcome and had so much fun.
The sentiment reads "You will be missed". 

The "washi tape" under the sentiment are actually stamped from an Inspired by Stamping set called Washi Tape.  I love this stamp set.  Never run out of washi tape again AND have them in any colour you want.
Added faux stitching, a flower die cut, a huge wooden button, and some satin ribbon and the card is done.  Quicker than a boy asking "Is my card ready yet" 50 times.
Thanks so much for visiting.  I have enjoyed making this simple card.  Hope you have enjoyed seeing it.
Have a lovely weekend.
This card is going into these challenges:
Sentimental Sundays #155 - Clean and Simple
One Crazy Stamper - May flowers challenge
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #46 - Anything goes with ribbon
BasicGrey challenges #94 - Inspired by a song - Yellow by Coldplay (My background using the BasicGrey stamp is very very yellow)
