Office Works at the Play Date Cafe - Challenge 17

Hi All,
Once again, the Play Date Cafe has come up with another great challenge and the colors are wonderful. I don't know why I chose an office theme but for some reason the office I work in, suddenly sprang to mind. Of course, the colours at work are pretty dismal but I guess that's business :)
Then I thought why not give a card to the people you work with is, it's a nice way to let them know how much you appreciate them.
My Challenge card:
For my  card I stamped, embossed, used the cuttle bug for some background pieces, made my own embellishments as well as store bought, and scalloped punched.
  Here I made a little pencil jar and used matchsticks for the pencils (which were sharpened, painted and the ends dotted with black pen). Then I added a CD which I used foil on and punched a hole in the centre.
Then I made a little vase from 2 circles I cut out with a circle punch and added a white button and dotted it with a red gel pen. I included 2 long stemmed roses in the vase and added some linen lace. For the computer screen I used patterned paper and a white gel pen  for the scribble.
I also decorated the inside of the card and thanks to a nifty idea from Kristina Werner, I used a post it note to add my own thank you, because it's a way to recycle your card.  And when you work in an office, who knows, you may end up getting the card back someday.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun creating this card..and don't forget to visit Play Date Cafe
Have a great GREAT Saturday and hope you will come visit me again :)
