Retirement Card

I have used my new Joanna Sheen Jane Shasky CD to make this card.  The images are gorgeous and it was hard to choose but I eventually decided on this one.  I have used the backing papers from the CD to mat and layer all four sides of the 8x8 card (the inside is personalised so that's why I've not shown it).  I printed off two sheets of the toppers so I could do some decoupage and fill up the card a bit more.  The card has been finished off with a doily cut in two, flower brads, cherry blossoms, sentiment off the computer and Papermania Glitterations.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Just Tracy's Monthly - Celebration
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Secret Crafter - New Year/Celebration
The Crafty Pad - Anything but Christmas
Sparkles Forum - Anything but a Christmas card - happy 1st Birthday to all of those involved with the Sparkles Forum
Paper Sundaes - Celebrate
Corrosive Challenge - Anything but Christmas
