The circle of life...

Life can be so strange.
Yesterday I was talking about babies and today I needed to make a sympathy card. One of my sons teachers just lost her Dad to leukemia. She was definitely "Daddy's Girl" and I thought this image called "My Sweet Lili" by Sarah Kay would be perfect.
I used warm gray Copics to color the image in a monochromatic scheme and added just a touch of pink to Lili's cheeks.
I wanted to add a bit of embellishment without taking away from the main image, so I decided to go with a black jewel flourish.
And finished it off with a rub on sentiment and some piercing along the border.
I guess you just never know what each day will bring, so make the most of it and go give those loved ones a squeeze.
