My Dear, Kind Friend

This week's 2 Sketches card has special meaning to me. I made it in memory of my friend and co-worker, Chuck, whose funeral was today. He was always smiling and never had an unkind word to say to anyone.

Chuck--my dear, kind friend--like the butterfly, I know you are soaring above us today on angel's wings.

Paper: PTI Sweet Blush, SEI Chocolat dp
Accessories: SEI Chocolat die cuts, PTI Sweet Blush ribbon, Chit Chat rub-ons (SU), rhinestones (The Paper Studio), dimensionals

Great colors Pink and butterflies are not usual Guy colors! But some how this works for a man!
