For a neighbour who lives a few doors away.  Her hubby hadn't been well for many years so news of his passing was not unexpected.....still sad though, I got on well with him.

Radiant Rectangles die cut frame
Sentiment stamped and cut with Curved Rectangle nestie
CB 'dotty' EF
Spellbinders EF
Black net
Handmade ribbon flower
Handmade stick pin

When in doubt as what to use as a backing very often I opt for the CB 'dotty' embossing folder. So easy to join to make a larger mat and neat too.

The Crafting Cafe - Feb Challenge - embossing
Papertake - anything goes (optional shaped card)
PCJ - emboss that

A very elegant card Irene and I love your use of the die cuts and folder. I have this folder (it's probably my favourite) unfortunately, I never seem to remember to use it until I see it used somewhere else to great effect.
