Sadly, my friend's dear mother-in-law passed away around Christmas and my own mother passed away on New Years' Day after 2 painful months in hospice. I was so consumed with my own needs that I never sent a card to my friend, so this weekend was devoted to making a card. I made several, but this is the one I settled on. I created a mask, used a distressed ink pad directly on the cardstock (instead of sponging that takes so much time for me to get suitable results) and then, still with the mask on, adding the black image.

This a beautiful card! I love that you used the different shape mask. You did a great job of putting your own pain aside to send this card to your friend so quickly. We lost my FIL the same day. May you have the comfort of your friends and family as we approach the end of the year.
