Shabby Chic Bereavement Card

Hello and thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have had a lovely weekend.  I certainly have as finally I got to scrapbook all weekend at the Embellish It Raincliff Retreat and I think I have my mojo back.  It was lovely to catch up and be inspired and share ideas with like-minded crafters.

Today I am sharing a Bereavement Card I made for a friend, on the passing of her mother last week.  A little eclectic shabby chic but loved creating it with special features of remembering Dora.

I have decided to enter this card into two challenges
  • One is at We Do Doobadoo. which is a Shabby Chic challenge.
  • The other is a 'Celebration' #93 challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.  Although my card is a bereavement card it is more a celebration of Dora's life with little mementos of a lady that was very special to her family. She loved flowers and fashion and when I first met her some 30 plus years ago she was enjoying a game of Housie (Bingo).
 I have used Marian Smith patterned papers and mixed this with flowers, trinkets lace and some very old vintage bead trim from my stash. 
Thanks  again for looking.  I will be back as I now have some new work to share.  I attended a 'Gabrielle Pollaco' layout class at retreat and also completed one of her recent kits which I am very pleased with.
Bye for now
