If only we might fall like cherry blossoms…

I’m sharing a card today featuring a pretty image from Aurora Wings called Sakura Fubuki Urei.

This image seemed very fitting for a card to farewell a staff member who is retiring, the idea that in retirement one has the time to enjoy the breeze and actually stop and smells the flowers!  At least that is what I hope for my staff member and this new phase of her life.

To make up the card I’ve followed the current sketch at Sketchy Colors, I flipped the sketch to give me a vertical rectangle for my image, which I framed using a Nestie.  I love my layers and this sketch really let me show off some lovely papers and feature some of my new lace too.  With all the layers I am also entering it at the Creative Knockouts’ current challenge.

This will also be my first entry in a Facebook fan challenge for Aurora Wings.  This month’s theme is shades of blue and the colour fitted my theme as blues are tranquil colours.  It also fitted in with the image symbolising the sky.
