Special Inspiration

 A very special man passed away, sending me to create something that would embody his spirit and be appreciated  by his wife.

He had spent a lot of time researching the family heritage, genealogy, etc. Reaching out to family across the world, making connections that hopefully will live on for generations.

For the card, I chose a couple of designer papers, backed them with coordinated card stock. Then, rather than running the ribbon above the panels, I ran it underneath where the two meet. (see inset). Lastly, a added the sentiment but it seemed a bit stark in just white. I took a paper towel pounced in the same ink & dabbed it around; rounded only 2 corners & layered it on.
