A Sad Mojo Monday

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Today is Mojo Monday. Be sure to check out Julee's card. It's fantastic as always. Here is my card for this week's sketch. This card was very hard for me to make as I will be sending it to my friend Rebecca, who suffered a tragic loss when her baby boy was still born on Saturday Night. There are no words one can really say when someone so dear to you suffers in such a way.
I used Really Rust, Bashful Blue and Black for my colors. I used Pocket Silhouettes for the main image and spritz the stamp with water prior to stamping it on watercolor paper. Then I took my aquapainter and swirled it in an ink puddle and just went around the edges. Then I used sponge daubers and sponged Bashful Blue chalk on the center of the card over the flower image. (The image looks crooked; but that's because it moves when I put it on the scanner.)
I'm afraid I don't have much else for you today...just not in the right frame of mind for creativity and spunky chatter. Please say a prayer for Rebecca and her husband Don during this time.
