There is a time for everything - Gold Soiree

PPA214 Island Indigo Crisp Cantaloupe Wild Wasabi

Yes, there is a time for everything. Because of that, today's card touches up the time when we depart from the earth. Recently a dear friend of mine lost her husband and it was a deeply saddened moment in the lives of the family and friends. However, he lived well and there was plenty to celebrate and memories to keep. I used the color combo from Pals Paper Arts challenge 214 and the sketch from Freshly Made Sketch challenge 148 to produce this card. While for a sad moment, I hope such a card can bring a sense of warmth to a grieving person.

The Gold Soiree Specialty DSP is simply gorgeous! The patterns are subtle and the colors marvelous. It set a good and peaceful ground for the card and anchored everything together. Love it.

The tiny butterfly gave the final touch.   It's simple to do with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  Did you see the Big Shot Special Offer?
