That memory becomes a Treasure-Prima January BAP Challenge

Good Morning! 

This morning I'm sharing my Prima BAP challenge. A small page indeed as it is a 6x6 card.

Our lovely neighbour lost her husband suddenly last week and I wanted to create a special card for her. I loved the look of the sketch and thought that it had elements that would work perfectly with my card. I started with a base of Designer paper from the Time Traveller Collection. I then used a stencil and some Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo to create the Chevrons.

I misted the paper with Antique Gold colour Bloom Spray and "spot stamped" here and there with a couple of Prima Stamps that I had, using dark ink to reconstruct the shape in the bottom right hand corner of the sketch.

I stamped the sentiment in Espresso Ink using the Treasured Memories set from
Impression Obsession. I love this sentiment. When we lose someone, the memories that we have certainly do become treasures, because that is all that remains. The treasured memories give us a sense of closeness to those that have gone before us as well as a reminder that as long as we have our loved one in our heart, they will never truly be far away.

Lastly, I added some floral , metal and wooden embellies, all from Prima Marketing

I really like the way the card turned out and I hope that it will bring our neighbour a little bit of comfort at this sad, sad time in her life

Remember the importance of treasuring each moment while you're in it; memories are treasures, but moments are meant to be enjoyed in the present.
