This card is for my mom, who lost her dad (my granddad) in February. I colored the cherry blossoms with Copic markers, sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, faux stitched around the edges with a tracing wheel and ruler, and used the sentiment from Always In My Thoughts. The doily is courtesy of Anna ("SweetMissDaisy")--thank you, Anna!
I used the recent Sketch Challenge 376 for the layout. This also fits the Central Theme of the Dirty Dozen Fan Club in March, which is "You Have Me In Stitches"--not because the card is humorous, but because I used faux stitching.
Thanks for looking, and happy spring everyone!

Shellie, this card is just done so beautifully. The colors are very soft and soothing and it is all perfectly crafted. Your Mom will surely love that you made this for her. My condolences to both of you on the loss of Dad/Grandad.
