Look At The Size Of That!

Hi all, I trust everyone is well & enjoying the start of summer! lol I read somewhere it's to begin in July here!
I ain't holding my breath!
I wasn't referring to the lady in the picture, when I decided on my title! lol

My card is huge!

I was asked to do a card for a girl at work who's going off on maternity leave & it needs to be signed by soooo many people so I had to make it a good size! 
I had some A4 card blanks in my stash but had never been brave enough to make them up!
The digi is from goodness knows where? I've had this set for such a long time (pre blogging days!) on my PHD & It's moved around folders time & time again. The image was pre-coloured. I used background tiles from the same set to create my own Design Paper in my graphics programme!
I used this sketch 

from Card Positioning Systems  
as the basis for my card design.

The greeting/sentiment is computer generated. The font I used is Sunshine Poppy which you can download free from here!
It's one of my favourite  fonts at the moment, it's soo useful!

I added some punched leaves & some roses just to give a bit of detail.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like it!
