My First Card in a While & Some Sad News

Hello everyone.
I don't know if you noticed but i have not posted anything for a few months now and there are a couple of reasons. Firstly i broke my right arm near the shoulder so i was unable to craft or do anything. My second reason is my very sad news, my little Yorkshire terrier 'Biscuit' died. He died in my arms getting lots of hugs and kisses. Even though he was nearly 14 years old i was still devastated by his passing, i got him when he was only 6 1/2 weeks old.
He has his own little plot in the garden now.
I thought it was about time i got back into crafting to keep myself busy.
So here is my 1st card in months.
Image - Magnolia 'Garden Tilda' from the Sweet Rainbow collection. Sentiment stamp is also Magnolia.
Medium - Memento ink, TH Distress Markers
Cardstock - TH Coredinations
Designer Paper - Melissa Francis
Tools - Freebie butterfly die and Martha Stewart edge punch
Embellishments - Strawberry charm, pearls and lace from my stash, Cherry Blossom flowers and ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, Chrysanthemum from Sweet Lilac store.
