Dieing to punch in pastels

I finally made a card after a five week abstinence using the pastel colour theme at Wild Orchid Challenges and my new MS deep border die, together with two SU punches in keeping with the requirements at Creative Card Crew - Let's punch it, Simon Says - Punch 'em and a Spoon Full of Sugar - Let's get punchy.  
Kraftin Kimmie's fab Rapunzal (coloured with Copics and Promarkers and edged with distress inks) and "Let your Hair Down" sentiment form the chief elements of this "Enjoy your Retirement" card.  Papers are K&Co and I have added some flowers, Craftworks candy and a pretty organza bow.
I know I still haven't been round to see you all - I went to a wedding on Monday, I'm going to a retirement function now and I've had Mum to stay but I will drop by soon.  Promise!

Hello Lesley,
lovely to see you back! I've been out of blogging as well but not because of holidays (coming up next week though!) but because I was a little poorly.
Love your card! The image is so lovely and you coloured it perfectly! The pastels are so pretty and the sheer ribbon just makes the whole thing even more delicate. Wonderful!
Lots of love,
