Thank you card

My niece Sierra is the best person I know. She is such a caring sweet girl. She takes such good care of everyone around her. When my furbaby Shadow died suddenly, she rearranged her plans for her day off to come to my house and help me through what was the first in a long line of utterly miserable days. I grieve him still as he was my best friend, my constant companion for the past 15 years and the reason I came home most days. Some days have been unbearable with the sorrow I feel and others breeze by without a single tear, only a sweet memory of the cuddliest cat God ever made.

I made her this card as a thank you for being there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on and someone to try and distract me from my loss. She is really the best!

i used glossy accents on the bubbles and cut out four layers of the piggy on the right to add dimension to the card.

It took me several hours to get everything colored (old fashioned Crayola pencils) and layered. I loved the results.
