Relax & Enjoy!

This week has been hard as my one & only child has bought his own place & at the age of 23 has left home Now whilst I am very proud of him & we have a fantastic relationship, I feel grief stricken, I know it will get easier in time & the fact he has gone means I have done a good job BUT it hurts!!!
Anyway I sat & made this card this afternoon to take my mind of things.
Make It Crafty have had a 40% sale on, so I took advantage of it & bought several of Zoes images as I really love them & this is one of them.
Coloured with Promarkers & Prisma pencils, I added Glossy Accents to the bath water, but it did not want to photograph well, so you will have to take my word for it. I decoupaged the dressing gown & towels to give some lift.
Backing papers are again from Dunelm, where I used a MS Daisy punch & added some Liquid Pearls.
Sentiment is my own computer generated one & brads & flowers are from stash.
Maybe I need to take more heed of the sentiment myself.....lol
Entered into the following challenges
Corrosive Challenges Water
Pollycraft Make A Splash
Do You Stack Up Mauve, Mustard & Pink

Aww, hang in there Dawn, it will get easier. My son left at age 18 to join the Marines. That was tough for a while. Be proud that your son is making it on his own. So many parents these days are not so lucky.
Anywho.........Love your card and keep crafting through it all. I’m glad you joined us for the Do You Stack Up? COLOR challenge & hope to see you again!

Aw, I can't even imagine as mine is not quite two yet, but you should be proud! And hopefully he is close enough so there can be visits to help ease the transition!

Your card is lovely! Great coloring and love the daisy border punch! Thanks for playing along @ The Corrosive Challenge! :)
