A Thank You Card

My Aunty Mary died last week, she was tired, almost 92 and ready to go but still sad. She'd had dementia for a number of years (a cruel and tragic illness) and was in a nursing home close to mum and dads. Mum wanted a thank you card for the nurses and carers at the home but didn't want a mushy card.

Anyway this is what I came up with after using a bit of jiggery pokery in Paint Shop Pro to merge the two images.

Papers-Gelato, Kaisercraft
Medium-Promarkers and Trias

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Digi's with Attitude- Anything Goes
Fairy Knoll-Cotton Candy ( I think the background papers are kind of cotton candy colours)
Inspire Me Friday/Joyful Stamper- Anything Goes
Stamp Insanity-Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time-Anything Goes

Hi Ruth,
Sorry to hear about your Aunt - was probably a happy release although sad for those closest to her.
Brilliant thank you card.
