It's always sad for those left behind when you have to say goodbye as they have left this world sooner than was expected in the normal run of things. One of my husband and sons colleagues sadly passed away towards the end of last year after a 5 year battle with non Hodgkin lymphoma , the sad thing was it was actually the last lot of his treatment that caused his organs to collapse but guess his time was up one way or another as he would philosophically said.
It was a wonderful service and as funerals go not that depressing as there were many who shared their happy memories of time they had shared with our friend and his family really appreciated how many people he had touched in such a positive way which they seemed quite comforted by.
I made two cards one for his immediate family and one for his parents as I cannot imagine what they must have felt as we found out that when our friend was a teenager his sister had also died , so his parents had had the misfortune of loosing both their children untimely and before themselves.
My cards I created a background with a quilted effect on the first on lilac card using a memory box stitching line die and added another memory box die cut of a fern cut in ivory pearl card.
I mounted this on pearl lilac card with a stamped sentiment embossed with moonglow obsidian violet powder.
Quite simple but in my mind as it should be.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-
cardz for galz- monochromatic
double D - leave it to me
CASology - sorry
Through the craft room door - anything goes
