This will go to a young family struggling with the loss of their father / husband.
I did a smooshed Ink bg then added my adjusted die cut family (mom, boy, & girl) and stamped some tree branches ( I think it was really a weed but the size is right). Stamped the PB sentiment which I dearly love because though we never forget a loved one we must still move forward and live each day to the fullest remembering the good times and putting the sadness behind us.
As I was trying to decide what kind of ribbon / cording to tie between the image & sentiment, I remembered in the nick of time that part of today's challenge was to use corners in some way - I have conservatively, 400 inherited Peel & stick corners in various styles, colors, patterns & designs. They worked perfectly to partially frame my sentiment and add balance to my card.

Linda, this is a wonderful scene and message. The sky is gorgeous, the pink adds a hopeful feel and the silhouetted family makes it even more vibrant. The beauty and poignancy will comfort the family and remind them of loving times. Thank you for lifting up LeAnna, Abby and Aric with this beautiful paper hug.
