Forever with You

This is the centerpiece I made for each of the tables at the small reception we held after my mother-in-law's funeral.  I wanted to make something that her family could keep as a remembrance.  It is a pedestal card with a flower from Art Philosophy and a sentiment from Phrases.  On the back of the pedestal I adhered a butterfly and frame with this sentiment: "Sadness flies away on the wings of time." 

It was a simple decoration but much appreciated by her brothers and sister.  Actually, when I showed it to our florist (to match colors), she asked me to make up one to display in her shoppe as she feels her customers might be interested in this type of remembrance.

Hope your week is off to a great start.
Happy Spring!!

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
