In sympathy for a friend





Good day

A friend of mine's father past away on Tuesday and I want to make her something special. I used Floral Cross from Digistamp4Joy and sentiment from Desert Diva for this project. For something different I crisscross the ribbon through the cross and added the flowers from  second print. I played with some of my spellbinders for the center part and used some black peel-offs. I stayed with no designer paper in basic white, black and purple.

The following challenges inspired me:
Charisma Cardz #3 - Peel-offs
Creative Knockouts #22 - Tic, Tac, Toe - Distressing, Sentiment & ribbon
Digistamp4Joy #84 - Use real ribbon - 2nd entry
Crafting when we can #61 - Recipe - 1 image, 2 ribbons, 3 main colours
Dream Valley #74 - No designer paper

Thank you and have a beautiful day.
Hugs from Africa
Olga
