Forever in our Hearts

A very dear friend contacted me about making a card for her daughter whose dear friend lost her father.  Loss is so hard and the girl is young.  :( 

But the request was for lime green and pink - I don't have a "true" lime green, but I thought these colors would work and the little girl as well as the recipient would like it.  As you can see, I carried the "heart" theme throughout the card as we will always treasure our loved ones within our hearts!

The layout is from The Sweet Stop (#121); I took a bit of liberty with the layout, but it's a good one!

I combined several dies and punches; DP is from MME.  :D  No surprise on that DP, eh?  LOL  Some scrumptious MFT lace and a cute little flower and button finish it off.

I included a glimpse into the inside of the card and the sentiment.  Both the outside and inside sentiments are from Verve Visual's Forever in our Hearts stamp set.

TFL; hope you have a great day!

...forever in our hearts...


Hugs, M.
