Layout 6 Cherry Blossom

It does feel a bit like cheating showing this layout.

It was made last year & could not be shared because I entered it into a sketch challenge.
I then forgot all about it until today, when I was putting away the layout I completed last week.

This page features one of my most favourite photos.
