Feeling Blue

When asked to make a leaving card what image do you pick?  I'd be very interested to know as I'm running out of ideas.

I've dug out my old stamp Molly Makes a Detour from Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls collection.  I've had this stamp for ages and have used it quite a few times.  I've coloured the image with ProMarkers and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz antique linen to take away the bright white of the card.  She's then been mounted onto some black card stock to frame her.
Design papers are from Santoro Gorjuss and I've used some more black card stock.  The lacy black to the left of the image has been created using a Spellbinders die. 

As this is a leaving card and its going to be passed round work I've kept the embellishments to a minimum just adding a new job sentiment from a Lili of the Valley art pad and some black self adhesive gems.
