It's Colour Week at Just Us Girls

This card was made with a heavy heart as a very dear
and old friend passed away recently.
She was a second Mother to my hubby as she spent
every week end watching her son and my hubby play soccer.
She was also a big part in our lives when we all lived in Darwin.
There are so many beautiful memories of our time together.
She was also the one that warned us
of the force that Cyclone Tracy was about to leash on us.
I started with Metallic Linen card stock.
With the same paper I then inked up my background images
which are from SU Bloom With Hope. These were coloured
with metallic paints. The focal flower was heat embossed
in navy, fussy cut and popped.
Behind that I added a few sprigs from a MS punch.
For the TH Splatters I used Mowed Lawn Stormy Sky
and Peacock Feathers. I'm afraid the Lime Green
is a little hard to see.
I cut out a tiny circle and added a punched heart
to which I added WOS. I thought this perfect
to put under the sentiment which is also from
that same stamp set.
Finished off with some pearls (of course) and
some cotton and bow.

Hope you pop over  and see what our May Guest
Kathie Durgan and my Team Mates have made.
Join us and you could be our Chic of the Week
and be in the running for Guest in July.

Thanks for dropping in today.
