A special card






Now, I don't know whether I should be putting this on here but it is the first time I have done a 'mostly' digital card. 'Mostly' because it had to be laminated and needed to be as flat as possible.
It is for my niece's grave. She would have been 29 tomorrow but her young life was cut short in a car accident at the age of 16. BIL gave me a few hours notice to do this and given more time I am sure I could have come up with something better. Anyway he was pleased with it and that is all that matters.
It is very nearly A4 size, the photo is matted on gold card and the leaves slotted into a little cut by the flowers. I added a little glitter glue in the centre of the flowers.
