Lavender memories

This is a card I made for my daughter's best friend who recently lost her mother.  She is like a daughter to me (she calls me "Mama Sharron") and loves purples & pinks so I thought this was a fitting card to show her how much I care.  It's always so hard to lose a loved one but we know that she is in a much better place & she's comforted by her memories of her mom. 

For my card I used simple lavender & purple cardstock & ran the lavender cs through my Vagabond machine.  This was my first time using a new Cuttlebug embossing folder by Anna Griffin called "Poppy".  It also came with an embossing border that I used for the side panel.  The flower is a Recollections floral embellishment from Michael's.  I distressed the embossing & edges with DI 'frayed burlap' and finished it off with satin ribbon & a little bling.  I think it gives it a more vintage feel.
