Challenge #54-Anything Goes

Okay, you get to decide what you want to do for the challenge at A Crafty Little Place this week. That's right...ANYTHING GOES!

The DT and I were able to work with the MME Lush DP. Here is what I did for the challenge:

DCRU Supplies: MME Lush DP
Memento Ink
Opaline Half Pearls
Inkssentials Opaque White Pen
Image and Sentiment: Clear Dollar Stamps
Misc: Stickles, Spellbinders Lable One, various butterfly punches, Rhinestones

This card was created for someone very close to my heart. Grandma Bandy...she is my husbands grandmother but I've taken her as my own. She lost her husband of 53 years this past Saturday. We will be having his services and funeral at the end of the week. I can't imagine what she must be feeling right now. It makes me so happy to know that God will remember him and that we
may see him again in the future...a perfect future at that! One where
"death, nor pain, nor mourning, nor outcry will be anymore... ", Revelations isn't all gloom and doom folks! I'm really looking forward to that world.
