Thinking of my Auntie

Hello again!
Ooh 2 in one day you say? Yup! Been a while since I have done that when neither are DT cards!

This card has a personal touch for me...we have recently found out that one of my Mum's Sisters has lung cancer. So far, the doctors say it's in the very early stages, so they think it's cureable in 3 treatments, but it's still a worrying time for her and her family. So I have made this card to give to her, sometime very soon I hope.

This gorgeous image happened to be released by Krista at Saturated Canary the same week as we heard the news. So it has been coloured in since then, waiting for me to make her into a card! Isn't she a beauty?! I know she is designed for a sad occasion, but I'm sure she will bring much comfort and brightness to many people. She is free btw, just pop on over to Krista's blog to download her for yourself.

I coloured her with Promarkers, backing papers are Wild Rose Studio Butterfly Garden, Prima flowers, and the ribbon & pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is also Wild Rose Studio.


Ok...better get to bed!
