I made my card for Martha whose husband, over the Christmas holiday, died suddenly of a massive coronary. She is the sweet Aunt of Mothermark (Cindy), who originated and until recently, was the host of the SCS Teaparty challenge. I brought flowers, a little sparkle and the inside of my card says "hello hugs" with a teeny, cute owl nestled in the words. I hope my card will bring a moment of happy and a smile to Martha. My heart goes out to her.
Note: I used the PTI die cut negative over the N of N layer as a backdrop for the watercolored flowers on the woodgrain (Tim Holtz) background.
THANKS for looking! :)
