Sympathy Card for my Aunt's family

Today I lost my lovely Aunt she died this morning surrounded by her loving family. It has been a hard few years as she suffered with Vascular Dementia. So though she was there in body often her mind was not with you. She is at peace now all the struggle is ended.

I used so many dies and two embossing folders. I wanted it to reflect something of my Aunt she loved lace,  the colour mauve and she liked to sing. She was a very lovely person.

 The detail on the heart is a Memory Box die.  All the other dies were Spellbinder dies.

This is the inside I often do inserts like this and I needed lots of space to write.

This is my Aunt she was a beautiful lady inside and out. She is at Peace now.

I hope you have a good week.  Hugs Jackie
