Sharing in their Sorrow

Hello friends, thought I would share my card I made for my Dad and Mom.  My Auntie, Dad's sister passed away on the 21st of March and she lived in the states and so my Dad hasn't seen her in a long time, but still is so sad when we loose someone we love.  I went to see my Auntie a few years ago, she reminded me so much of my Dad and their mom too.  Such fond memories, that I have now shared with my Dad once again. I know sometimes we have such a hard time making a sympathy card or even receiving them.  So I thought something a little pretty was in store for this one.
Thanks for stopping to see what I've created, and remember someone in your life you have lost and smile.  Memories are the best gift one can give themselves.
I decided to enter my card in the following challenges:
Mema's Crafts: Anything Goes
The Paper Nest Dolls: Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge Blog: Flowers
Simon Says Stamps Challenge Blog: Anything Goes
