Retirement card but different to the norm!

Hi all, well I need to make a retirement card but didn't want to go down the normal route as she is retiring early not through choice but a need to look after her family so this is what I came up with

Can you tell I went a bit mad with the sparkle lol
Enjoyed making this and using my sparkle medium and have learnt to spray the spray and sparkle outside as my craft area needed a scrub after all the extra sparkle! Looked like a fairy had visited :-)
Anyway hope you all are having a good weekend and enjoying the weather.

Ingredients for card - Indigoblue freebie stamp and used with archival ink.
Card for base,layer and leaves from Annamarie designs
Spray and sparkle ( in a abundance! )
Stencil "mini art is" and used with Cinnamon sparkle medium which I love
Ribbon from my secret Santa
Flowers from florist and sparkle medium added
Pearls from stash and a Woodware punch for leaves x
