Heavy Hearts

Morning all, I'm a little late with my card this month for the challenge over at  
Time just seems to be catching up with me lately and yesterday was a sad day as my sister had to have her cat put to sleep.   She was 16 and had been part of the family since she was a kitten  :-( so I didn't get round to writing my post.
It's fitting that today's card happens to be a sympathy card (although I didn't use if for them).

While we're talking about the challenge blog can I just point out that we're struggling to give prizes away.  Some of them have been unclaimed and even after redrawing they're still waiting.  Please, if you enter the challenges don't forget to check out the winners page to see if you have been lucky!
 One of our lovely teamies has sadly had to step down from her position so we are also looking for a new team member.  When you post your entry this month please add DT after your name if you'd be interested in joining.

We're being sponsored this month by

They are giving away a fantastic prize which is a THREE MONTH SUBSCRIPTION to the Inky Moon Beams Club, which includes digis stamps, sketch layouts and discounts.

My card today was done using one of their sentiments which is a lovely one to have for sympathy cards.  They're not the easiest cards to make and sometimes you just don't know what to say so this is perfect for those cards.

Recipe :
Plain card blank embossed with Couture Creations Tied Together Embossing Folder
Sentiment - Blue Moon Creation cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Hearts
Flowers - Memory Box Prim Poppy
Butterfly - Memory Box - Pippi Butterfly backed with Darla Butterfly
