... I heard yesterday evening that my friend's husband died - he had been ill for a while, and my friend had to close her shop to be with her husband. Sadly, I didn't hear until I spoke to her yesterday. So I've made this card for her and gave it to her this morning.
I CASEd my own card made for the For Your Inspiration challenge - I thought the leaves and verse were just perfect. However, I did change the colours, my inspiration coming from Kim and Lynne (at the bottom of the post). Actually, I can see this design working in other colours too - shades of brown, green, grey and lavender would all work beautifully. And I think Claire's verse is just lovely.
