I'M Back and a card I wish I didnt have to Make

Good Evening friends thanks for popping back and thanks for all your good wishes for my operation. I am now at home and making a good recovery still not there yet but improving daily.
Today I have a card I would like to share with you. While I was in hospital a very good friend of mine had the worse news she had been dreading. Her husband the sweetest person you would want to call a friend was gravely ill and after a very short and brave period lost his battle. Why is the world such a cruel place, takes the lovely, kind ,gentle people and leaves some of the worse behind. Well he is at peace and no doubt looking after her from above.
I found this stamp in my box of clear stamps and had an idea of the heart and the shadow of the heart on a pool of water with a dove above taking it off to heaven. Not sure if this is what i made but that was my idea. Kept it plain with some silver and black satin ribbon and the water is watered down glitter pen hope it shows in the close up. A few black gems and the dove has a clear heart gem in its beak. The sentiment is an Anna Griffin stamp.

Well hope you like my card this is my 2nd sympathy card this year and hopefully my last for 2011.
Please come back tomorrow as it is Wednesday so that means another challenge for you at Creative Inspirations and we have a brilliant challenge in store for you.
Till tomorrow keep safe. xxx
