Celebrate

My dear friend, Jackie, who I worked with for about 15 years and I've known for about 20, just got engaged.  She lost her husband, Joe, to cancer about five years ago after a hard fought battle.  You always knew when Joe entered the room.  He certainly wasn't shy and had a love for life that was an example for all of us.  Joe is dearly missed; yet at the same time, I am sure that he is thrilled Jackie has found love again! 

This card is inspired by the Stampin' 411 sketch this week.  I put some of my SU Sale-a-Bration papers and stickers to good use.  Added a few little gems and ribbon and we were in business! 
Celebrate Jackie...I am so happy for you!
