Goodbye From us All

Andy needed a card for a colleague who's leaving his work. He wanted an animal themed card with 7 animals representing the 7 members of his team.  And I instantly thought of Jane's cute 'Noah's Ark' digi stamp.  I like that the animals are sailing away - just like they are saying goodbye. :) I had to add an extra bird on the roof to make up numbers.
So I printed lots of times onto lots of different patterned papers and paper pieced it all together.  The papers are mostly from THIS kit... love the woodgrain.
I added another pair of birds onto the inside too. 
Hope she likes it. :)
I'm entering it into the Moxie Fab 'Fun and Cute' Challenge too.  Those animals are just TOO cute.
Have a great Tuesday.
E.T.A - I used Justy font - available free HERE.

What a fun card, Lucy! I love the way you've paper pieced it all together! Do you know what font you used for your sentiment or what stamp?! I just love it!
Hope you're enjoying the summer holidays as much as me!
Hugs,
