This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE. I used Tuesday's kewl COLOR CHALLENGE - Pink Chocolate Hoods. This was such a hard card to make. A sweet fellow nurse co-worker is grieving the death of her 35yr old daughter who died Monday night with a sudden massive heart attack. No warning just instant death. I had to lean back as I was making this to keep my tears from staining my card. I used choc chip for layer 1, Berry Bliss for layer 2a, and riding hood red stamped with tone on tone Baroque for layer 2b. I covered my seams with some dark brown ribbon. My focal image was stamped with the sentiment in choc chip then I inked the flower image with pretty in pink and old olive markers, stamped off, huffed and stamped over my sentiment. This is layered with pink pirouette, riding hood red, then choc chip and popped up. I really like how this turned out but hate that I needed it. I am taking this to work to have all of her co-workers sign before handing it to her at the funeral home tonight.

This is so beautiful! The story brought tears to my eyes. She will really appreciate that you went the extra mile and made her this wonderful card. I love how you stamped the sentiment over the soft flowers. The whole card just looks so nice!
