Miss You Aunt Hazel

Hi everyone. Today I'm posting a card I made a week ago for the Moxie Fab World Trigger Challenge. When I made this card, I had no idea I would be dedicating to my Great Aunt Hazel. This morning, Aunt Hazel left this world to be with Jesus. I'm sure everyone in Heaven is in stitches right now because Aunt Hazel was a hoot. Although she is biologically my great aunt, she was really more like a grandmother to me. She lived with my mom and my maternal grandmother, all of whom are widows. I often fondly referred to the three as "The Golden Girls." I am so blessed to have gotten to know Aunt Hazel over the past 15 or so years. You couldn't help but be drawn to her fun-loving spirit. I will miss her, but I take comfort in knowing I will see her again in Heaven, where we will laugh together again. Goodbye Aunt Hazel. Thank you God for blessing me with the opportunity to get closer to her.

I drew a lot of inspiration from the photo. I love the damask pattern on the rug. I used my L Letterpress to create the damask pattern on my card. I also love the dark wood floors in the picture. The floor, the soft, muted colors, as well as the chair and lamp in the photo are reflected in my card. The title of the Trigger Target is Simple Elegance, which is why I decided to keep my card clean and simple, yet draw in some of the elegance from the picture.

Thanks for looking and God bless.
