Retirement card for a nurse

So the original idea anne(norfolk) suggested she didnt do, so wasnt much point in using that, although its in the vault for another time. So I came up with this. I have seen something similar when I very first started crafting so could not tell you where to look for it as it was a few years back, they had used chocolate and had a little hammer to break the glass, not sure it could even be nicks?! i dont know, whoever it was though good idea!!!! thanks.
I wanted the front to be pretty and clean cut like any other standard card, and the inside contains the connection to the nurse who works in sexual health with teenagers. Easy brief, but not being the wittiest tool in the box I had to think hard about it!
I used a layer of acetate and some memory glass to cover over and sizzlitt alphabet for the wording, the front stamp is a hero arts stamp which i used a mix of 2 colourbox chalk inks for the blue of the flower.
I am quiet happy with it as i didnt want it to be smutty, and i dont think it is.
