Sympathy Morning Glories FTTC68

Good afternoon everyone,
One of my aunts passed over the weekend, so I made this card to send to my uncle and the children (my cousins)
I spent a few summers with them growing up as a young girl. They live in a different part of Quebec, a couple of hours away from Montreal and I have very fond memories of those days.
I used the beautiful morning glories from Flourishes "A Year in Flowers" series and K and Co. dp. The Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge for this week is to make a flower, so I cut out two small circles of the dp and cut each one into 4 pie shaped wedges, folded the wedges smaller and more narrow and stuck them onto dimensional foam and thin clear adhesive dots. I placed the pieced together flower onto a folded/looped ribbon and added this pearl and fabric embellishment from a strand of fancy trim that I recently bought.




Here is a close up of the flower part.

I seem to remember my aunt wearing purple quite a bit, so I think she would have liked this colour for a card.
Thanks for visiting,
Chriss
