I have a friend battling cancer so I made this card for him. I like to always have the cross before me and the cross behind me in all circumstances. I know he will find comfort there as well.

I used a Paper Studio embossing folder on the the baja breeze paper. I used some Basic Grey deisgn paper, and punched the dark brown paper with a Martha Stewart corner punch and then arranged them together to go across the bottom. The brown strip across is taffeta ribbon.

I accented the cross with some brown pearls. I did this for the ODBDSLC212 challenge.
