I didn't know which way the card should go, so I made a second card with very similar elements, just switched up the colours a bit :) I hope you all have a relaxing evening...we are taking my son back to the airport tonight and then having dinner with the rest of the family before they leave in the days to come. I wish you all "LOVE" and hugs...

Love (you Mom) ~ Embellish Colour Challenge
Good evening, dear friends :) We had mom's funeral mass and burial today...though it was a sad time, she would've loved it, a full church and all :) It was so nice to see so many old friends and family. I am the youngest of 6 children so we were her pallbearers...it was very sweet :) So it seems only fitting my card is all about "Love" tonight. My mom was a very selfless, faithful woman so in the days and years to come I will strive to be more like her and hopefully carry on her legacy :) This card is for the new Embellish challenge. I wanted to use an old book for the text panel and couldn't bear to use one of my Grandmother's French poetry books, so I used some pages from my old college poetry book!! LOL (Norton's Anthology of Modern Poetry). It's almost an antique seeing that I took the English course over 20 years ago!! I got to use my Slice again...cutting out the love word in Raspberry Fizz, and I got to use the line of hearts from Verve's Thankful Hearts.
