A difficult card to make!

I have been asked to make a card in memory of a little boy who died about 2 years ago. He was only 10 weeks old and I have been looking at his memorial site, at the messages and pictures and I have been crying my eyes out!

I wanted this card to be a celebration of his life rather than a sympathy card but it didn't make it any easier to make. I used a poem I wrote last year, in fact it was one of my very first blogs posts here. I re-worded it a bit to suit the circumstances and embellished the card with his name and a stamped image....I do hope it is OK!!
