Fairy Card

The request for this card from a pal was that it had Fairies on it.  No problem as I knew I had my JS Enchanted Dreams CD.  I had put off making the card as I knew the recipient's mum was very ill, and was aware that the wording might need careful consideration.  I could hardly put "Happy Birthday" on it.  Sadly her mum died, and my pal and I have been to her funeral today.  It was a beautiful "farewell" to a lovely lady.  It was an Humanitarian funeral - completely non-religious.  Linda's mum had sorted it all herself, complete with having bought the stick-on butterflies to be put on her coffin.  On a happier note another friend of our family gave birth to a second son today - what is it they say - one out,one in.

Cream cardstock.  Image mounted on silver mirri, as is the sentiment.  (I put the image into MCS, and picked out one of the colours for the sentiment and its border).  Image  is then mounted on a larger copy of the image, also mounted on silver mirri, and that in turn is mounted on the backing paper that goes with the image, mounted on purple pearlised papermania card.
