Sending Prayers


Hi everyone. I've made a card for a very sad purpose today.
A cousin of mine has died after a long fight with breast cancer.
Sending her parents this card, made following Betsy's technique,
'Ombre Watercolor Backgrounds.'


I love the soft look of the background, and tried it Betsy's way with 3 shades
of green. Second time around added honeynut and stuck with that little bit of 
color change.


My cousin was full of faith, and during the worst of it, always managed
to encourage everyone around her. I will miss her, but I know I'll see her again!

Take care, my friends. This gift called life is all too fleeting!
