Retirement card

My brief for this card was to make a retirement card for a lady who runs a playgroup.

The first stamps that popped into my head was this oldie set from Stampin' Up  - I think it's called Kids at Play but I wouldn't swear to it.
I repeated the stamp at the top so it looked like a load of kids were peeping over the wall and then drew in a line to join them up.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and the 2 kids at the bottom were popped up on foam pads.  Background chalked through a brick stencil.  My grass border is an old Martha Stewart punch.  Little silver stars from stash.
