Just Add Ink Challenge #12

Here it is that time of the week again and time for the Just Add Ink challenge! YAY it's a sketch which is kinda cool as I'm really learning to enjoy these.
Sadly though the card I am needing is for a very old (as in we've know them for a long time) friend of the families who have just recently found out that they only have months to live. What's super hard about this particular wonderful man is that he knew my Dad. Soooo to now know that he too will soon pass just makes it all very, very hard.
In saying that what a privilege I have to be able to send them a hand made card, full to overflowing with love, thoughts and prayers for this special family!! That's one of the beauties of craft/card making isn't it, we can show people we care with that little something extra...
here's the sketch
here's my card
and a little closer on that flower! I am enjoying the new DSP from the Autumn mini and the cool techniques of ruffled ribbon and sponging on the sides!!

hugs to you all,
Sharnee :0)
