This is one of those cards we all wish we didn't have to use. Unfortunately, this one needs to be used now.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Robyn's Fetish - Anything Goes
This card has been a very difficult one to make. A family I know has just lost their mother/wife. The youngest child is 11. Her Mum had been unwell for a couple of years but deteriorated a couple of months ago and lost her battle with lung cancer two days ago. I wanted a special card for them but these are always the hardest to do.
I have used some metallic paper in a soft lavender colour for the matting and then taken the colour from that for the image. I have kept the colouring to a minimum within the swirls and also the border. I have added some soft lavender pearls to the card - I didn't want anything sparkly and fortunately managed to find these pearls. I was aiming for a simple elegance with this card and I think I have achieved that.
