Lots of Memory Box Dies and some punches

This card is rather special, not what you'd call a quick card, but it was a labour of love, but it's for a lot of people that have meant a lot to me for many years. It's a thank you card to all at Little Sutton Methodist Church' where I have worked for the past 12 years. I'm sad to leave but can still worship there as long as it remains open, which in the present times seems not long. Our Minister and 2 stewards came round yesterday and brought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and they prayed for my future success in a new job.
My card was cased from this wonderful card by a very talented card maker and blogger found here .
I have used : memory box dies, small window, window box , twig with berries and brand new bicycle.
2 wood ware leaf punches
cream leaf lace
Darling Dear 6x6 paper by my minds eye.
