Retirement card

The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

Proverbs 10:22

I have made this card for a teacher at work who is retiring in a few weeks.  This Sturated Canary image looks very like her and I found the sentiment on a shared poster on Pinterest.  The papers and flowers are all odd bits from my stash, nounted onto a shaped 8 x 8″ card.


Challenges today: – mainly red – elegant – flowers – Anything goes with markers – 3 or more design papers – shaped card – summer blooms
