New stage in life

I am trying to fill in some gaps in the assortment of cards I have available for sale.  Once in a while some one needs to recognize a new job, retirement, etc. with a card of this type.  Here, the inside verse says "As a chapter closes in your life, and a new one starts for you, May your years be filled With all the things You're looking forward to.  ENJOY!  I like the color combo, but I did struggle to find something to work.  I think this does!  I should add - I am probably pretty well known for my frugal ways!  I have had the verse (computer) printed on the base for some time, and it had become a bit smudged on the back - not much, but noticeable.  I solved the problem by cutting a slightly larger piece of the grape cs, and glued the entire base card to the grape piece.  I kind of like the result!  The flourish is from an SU set - sent to me quite a while ago through the WishRAK forum on SCS.  The sentiment is from a new set received from Mark's Finest Papers.  The pumpkin dp is K&Company, and I used the Congratulations ef (CB).
Colors (grape, waterfall, pumpkin):
