Hello all!! I have been away for the past couple of weeks and unable to create or join in any challenges.  Since I needed to make a thinking of you card for one of my best friends who just found out her Mom has Liver Cancer and has only a few months left to live, I used yesterday's sketch at Splitcoast. I hope this is somewhat soothing. I am praying for her in these difficult days.

For my image I used Lilac from the Garden Collection at Our Daily Bread Designs . The background is embossed in Vine Background . While I wanted to add a sentiment, I could not find the right one which would fit in the sketch. The vines are Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourishes. The lattice strip is created with a Martha Stewart punch.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Have a blessed Day!!!

Oh Chris... you already know how much I love this card but I'll tell you again... because it's worthy of saying again... WOW!!!! The sketch is perfect for this image and I love how you colored it and cut it out. The punched panel gives so much texture, as does the flourish! Just beautiful and full of details. She will so appreciate this labor of love and it will give her much comfort in the difficult days ahead, as will knowing you are praying for her!!!
