It's good to be back in the craft room after a small break. This week Eid al adha is celebrated in the UAE, and most people (including hubby and daughter) have the whole week off. So we visited our neighbour city of Dubai... and enjoyed a few days at the Dubai Marina. A very relaxing time, spent almost all the time next to the pool, strolling around the Marina, admiring all the huge yachts and enjoying the huge variety of worldwide cuisine that's available!
Two photos from the 52nd floor of our hotel:

On to my card:
Unfortunately I need a sympathy card today, since a family member passed away... a young man of 33 who lost his short battle against the big C. He died just more than 3 months after he was diagnosed.
I took a few photos from different angles to show the effect of light through the vellum.
I used white vellum, which was colored in a circular movement with 2 different shades of purple using Promarkers.
The rose was cut from a clipart image I traced using the Silhouette software. It was then placed on top of the vellum, which again was placed on the inside of the rose shape aperture, also cut with my Silhouette.
To define the image I added some faux stitching.
My own digital sentiment to finish everything off.
... and shared in English and Afrikaans.
Such a long post, I almost forgot the challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
Have a blessed day!
