A commission for a doctor

I was asked by a colleague, to make a card for her doctor, who is retiring.
He has helped the family a lot over the years, 
and she wanted to give him a personal, heart-felt thankyou.
So she asked me to make him a  card.

I really enjoyed designing and making this card.
It just seemed to fall into place and fit together so quickly. 
I hand drew and cut the pieces ...the collar, the tie and the pocket. 
I coloured the tie with my promarkers and 
made the 'doctors' badge on my pc.
The clipboard is stamped with a new stamp I bought in 
The Range a couple of weeks ago, and I handwrote the sentiment straight on.
The final touch was a stethoscope.
I didn't even draw the shape...I just cut silver, black and white card pieces
and stuck them altogether. 
Altogether, once I had the idea in place, this card ended up being a quickie!
PS... my colleague was thrilled with it!!!  :)
