Sugar Nellie for the Sugar Bowl............

Good morning,

My card today is a sympathy card. I know it's a little bright and cheer instead of the normal muted colors for this type of a card. But this image reminded me of my 41 year old cousin when she was young. (She passed away on Saturday) So I have poured my heart into this card to send to her hubby and girls. I do hope that it will put a smile on their faces through all of their tears.

I have followed Judy's Sketch over at the Sugar Bowl Challenge blog this week.
Wishing you all a very wonder day!
hugs, janny

Card Ingredients:
Papers: Iridescent white, bazill card stocks, The Paper Studio, My Minds Eye
