Spots & Stripes at An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. 
I'm here with my first DT post for today and this one is for 

and this fortnight the lovely Helen has picked the theme


Here's what I did:
Unfortunately I had a request from my MiL for a sympathy card recently and I wanted to keep the design simple but elegant. The card is for one of my MiL's oldest friends. He was the Best Man at her wedding and he also Christened Jack many years later.
I recently won some images from Floppy Latte Designs and I chose this Lily Card Frame as I thought it would suit this sad occasion. I simply added the text before I printed the image off and then fussy cut it out.
My six months or more items are the Design Papers - my Mind's Eye 'Lost & Found' and the gorgeous satin ribbon.
The pearl swirl was bought recently at GNPE.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my DT buddies.

I don't think I would like to enter any challenges with this card - I'm just so sorry I had to make it :o(

I'll be back very shortly with a much happier card for my last GDT project for Loves Rubberstamps.

Until then - thanks for popping by.
