Just beautiful Donna. You have to teach me to use sheer ribbon - I have so much of it but never use it! I will have to try it again!

A perfectly colored image - love the flowers - it seems so perfect for the occasion, though sad it is. Perhaps will make your friend warm and fuzzy knowing you thought of her. The background paper is luscious - and the lace and organza ribbon is ever so elegant, Donna. Yes, here's hoping for dry weather for the competition - y'all have fun! ;-)
