ryan_send_offI created this card for our beloved Associate Pastor to wish him well as he moved to a perfect-for-him new job in Connecticut. Our family is missing him dearly and a little hole in our lives won't close (at least not yet), but we are so excited for him and the opportunities ahead. I wanted to make him a special card to wish him on his way; I hope that he like it.

I used this sketch as the starting point for this card. Actually, this is the second card that I have created based on this sketch; I find this layout quite easy to work with and my two designs don't look like they come from the same inspiration. This time around I used the sentiment on this card in the place of the upper strip on the smaller layer.

I have to say that the images in this stamp set and the greetings are just fantastic. There aren't a lot of retirement and "new adventure" sentiments in the Stampin' Up! library, so I just had to snag this set up! I liked this card so much that I also had the gals in stamp club make it in our February gathering. I hope that they liked it, too.
