In memory of Mary Lou

This has been a difficult card to make.  Over the years, I have made several cards for our friends - including a 50th anniversary card last summer.  Yesterday, Mary Lou's struggle with Parkinson's and related issues ended, and she has gone to be with Our Lord.  She will be much better, yes, perfect, but it will not be easy for Jerry and many others as they deal with her loss.  If you are so inclined, include a little prayer for family and friends.  I will be making more cards as we have other friends who want to remember her.
I used the freebie from A Day for Daisies - thanks to others on the site who inspired the way I used the image.  I colored with chalk pencils for the soft look I wanted, and I chalked the Swiss Dot layer.
Sentiment - JustRite; chalk, Cheery Lynn die, glitter (flower centers), glittery cs for the bird;  Victoria Embossing folder; dark blue cs.
I will finish later....
Use a bird:
No pattern paper:
Any, with chalk:
