Summer flowers

This card was made a a leaving card for the secretary at my children’s school. She was retiring due to ill health so I kept the sentiment quite generic.

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.
