Good Bye and Good Luck

A dear colleague is leaving next week for new adventures and I wanted to make a card for him. I love the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies set for making leaving cards, I like the image of taking off for new adventures. Funnily enough, as I was sitting at my desk, I could see a real-life hot air balloon in the sky above our village. They tend to be around quite often in the summertime, and I think this was the first one I've seen this year. 

I'm linking up with Daring Cardmakers where the theme very appropriately this week is Good Byes. I'm also linking up with Make My Monday where the theme is A Hint Of Summer to Come and Time Out where the inspiration phrase is "Friends are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom", and I was inspired by the friendship theme.

Card: White hammered card, 160 gsm Hobbycraft white card, Dovecraft 110 gsm premium vellum
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Oxides, Copics
Stamps: Lawn Fawn Blue Skies and matching dies
Other: Lawn Fawn Extra Banners and Stitched rectangle dies

A lovely, light-hearted take on the "Good-Bye"-theme! The background and colours are beautiful. And the mix of paper and vellum clouds is just so clever. Thanks for sharing!
