Delicious Doodles - #6 - Remembrance

I was so excited to have a day to spend with my parents yesterday - having them live close by is such a blessing - and one I take for granted too often. I had the pleasure of spending the day working with my daddy on teaching him how to restore some old photos and crafting with my mommy...making cards together. What an awesome way to spend a day... They both mean so much to me and I am very honored to have them as my parents.

This is the card I made while playing in mom's craft room. I love these images from Teri (over at Delicious Doodles Shop). Her sketching ability is amazing and I am so jealous of her talents. Our challenge at Delicious Doodles Challenges this week is "Remembrance". I think these images go together so nicely and made for a lovely sympathy card for my stash. I colored them very lightly with chalk, just to give the hint of color... added some great paper from my stash (no clue who makes it), some ribbon and a simple sympathy stamp I recently got from the $1 bin.

Pop on over to the site for some inspiration by our design team - they've blown me away yet again! Join in the challenge for a chance to win some great images from Delicious Doodles!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Make it Monday - #60 - Linky Party
Fab'n'Funky Challenge - #98 - All White in the Night
Paper Sundaes - #93 - Rectangles
DYSU Challenges - #45 - Inspired by a Song (How Great Thou Art)
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Nov - Blue/Green

Thanks for stopping by!

It's very serene and understated. I love the way you "sort of" colored the flowers with just hints of color here and there.
