Missing you

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great day. Yesterday, I received some sad news, my niece's dog of 14 years died. I got really sad because I got that dog for her when she was only 6, now she is 20. I talked to her last night and she was very sad but feeling better. The saddest part is that her dog has been my dog's (his name is "Bethoven") company for over all these years. My sister told me he was crying and I am pretty sure he is missing "Pelusa" so much. He is 14 years old too. I wish I could bring him here, but I can't. My family there (Peru) is taking care of him now.

Anyway, I was feeling kind of blue, because I am missing my doggie and my family too! so I decided to make a card to send to my niece and I hope she can feel better soon.

I usually don't use too much black on my cards, but I think this one turned out pretty good. Today, I got  my new SU paper "Love Letters" and I decided to give it a try. I also made more paper flowers in different colors, :) this one is pure ivory, the edges are ink with Antique Linen and Tea Dye, I add some Clear Glitter from MS.

I am combining several challenges and they are:
