  10. Hi, Carol - Love everything about your card, and want to make one similar - your colors and theme are very feminine and a little Vintage-like,making it especially beautiful. I'm sorry to hear about your son. How devastating. I hope he is soon able to move on, and eventually, find a magnificent place in his soul which will bloom, and maybe after a while, even find another love. Your granddaughters sound like pure delight! hugs, de
