CR84FN ... second post

My second card today is for the new colour challenge at CR84FN which is based on this lovely photo courtesy of Leslie at A creative Mint  whose beautiful photographs are so very uplifting ...



I did this card for the family of the friend I lost this week ... the colours just seemed so appropriate


Those pretty flowers are from a sheet of Decoupage that I had from my early crafting days ... somehow I prefer them to be randomly layered rather than on top of each other ... so that's what I did


The background to my flowers is stamped onto white CS with sky grey ink ... and I added some pretty pale pink pearls to the flowers ... did you notice the little heart pin just peeking out too? I've had these for ages and just a simple heart says it all I think ...  The papers and sentiment are from a Perfect Pages scrapbook kit ... and ribbon from my stash ...
So that's it for now ... I hope you are having a wonderful day

Till soon

~ Ros ~
