Thinking of You

Hi everyone!

Today's card is a very special one.  

It's for a neighbor/friend of ours that lost her 21 year old son 
(my son's best friend) last year on Aug. 9th due to a car accident.

I wanted to create something special for her to let her know that I'm thinking about her...hoping this small gesture might brighten her day.

The layout was inspired by this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #181, and the color combo is for this week's Color Q Challenge #183 to use Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride. 
(I substituted using SU! Pink Pirouette and TPS Coral).

This pretty flower image is from Verve "Because of You" set, and I popped it up using foam-adhesives.

Card Deets:
Cardstock:  SU! Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette and Coral from TPS.
DP:  SU! "Thoroughly Modern", and Colorbok "Splendor".
Stamps:  Flower by Verve "Because of You", Sentiment from Heidi Grace.
Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Dew Drops, Rubber Stampede and Prisma Watercolor Pencils.
Other:  Pearl by Want2Scrap, button, white craft-string and foam-adhesives.

Such a lovely card Cheryl. I love the way you layered the flower, it looks super. I never think to do that! I am so sorry for the loss of your your friend's son. Such a tragedy. He was a very handsome young man. I know your kind thoughts will be appreciated. Sending hugs your way, Joanne.
