Happy Sunday!

Hi from sunny Port Alberni! Three days now of nippy but sunny weather. We have been working in the yard and I have been walking each day. Hope your weather is starting to get spring like too!
I am so excited to say I received a RAK from 'Sandy' of Cryogen White paper. It is the one with the sparkles in it. I have been wishing for some of it for a very long time. I wasted no time in making my card with it and LOVE the way it looks.
I have made a card for a dear friend who lost her husband in January. They were in our Wedding Party 41 years ago!

It is another fairly plain card - I just can't seem to make one with tons of layers, flowers etc. on it.
Card stock: SU River Rock - *YAY they are bringing it back!
Design Paper: All Digital from NITWITS - love it
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black for Tilda and SU River Rock for all papers
Stickles: Crystal
Flower: Prima
Ribbon: SU Certainly Celery.
Colored with Copics ( picture follows )
Here is Tilda a bit closer:

Also the very pretty flower:

I am sorry I can't show you the inside - once again I wrote in it before I remembered I wanted to take a picture of it!!! This old head LOL
Here is a picture of the Copics I used:
Thank you for taking a look at it :o)
Hope to see you again soon ~ Love Candy
