You're Not Forgotten

Hello all!

This week's challenge theme @ Delightful Challenges is "THINKING OF YOU". I've used this theme is a fairly general way, but perhaps you would like to interpret it as a condolescense card, a card to cheer someone up or something else altogether. Either way, we'd love to see it!  I thought to try my hand at a different shape card. I don't own a die cut machine, so used my old school pair of compasses to trace the circle and cut it out by hand. I suppose it's not exactly round because of it, but I still like it. I love the idea of a die cut machine, but it seems like there's so much investment involved, with all the plates you need and of course the dies and embossing folders. But who knows, I might still buy one one day :)
