A card to remember Alice

My dear mother-in-law, Alice Hickey, would have been 100 years old today. She was the most wonderful MIL a girl could hope for! I miss her.

The image is from Digital Two for Tuesday. I could have used it black & white, but I decided to color it with a monochromatic palette (Copics: BG10, BG15, BG18).
DP: My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found - Market Street" (6x6 DP pad).
I just found these yummy little crochet flowers at Michael's today; I could only find one package! Love them.
I hope a hero's Mom will like this one!

Beautiful card, Sherry. I like the colors you chose and that little crocheted flower. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

What a lovely card, Sherry! I love how you colored the image in monochromatic colors. I think it really makes it stand out. You were so lucky to have a wonderful mother-in-law. My husband's parents were deceased before I met him. It sounds like you all were very close.

Sherry, rest assured any Mom would love receiving this card! The vintage look is one of my faves and the shading in the colored image is beautiful ;)
