Sympathy Floral Arrangement Tag

Another friend passed from cancer and his funeral is tomorrow. He had been a part of an Emmaus group that had travelled to Michigan quite a few years ago.
Once you attend Emmaus with friends it deepens the friendship as you are drawn nearer to God.
Our friend lived the FAITH, and God's light was constantly beaming through his gentle and loving nature.
One of the gals in our group had a wonderful idea to include a lantern in the floral arrangement we are offering for the funeral, but the typical floral shop tags did not convey the message, or image, that really worked.
Searching for "free" clip art...it never is. But I found something that I could print, and used the window as my light table and my daughter's drawing pencils to trace. The candle is my own add-in, rather obvious - but it's the thought that counts!
I used yellow chalk ink to make the candle glow - as our friend's light will always shine in our hearts.
Papers used are scraps from Crossed Paths.
God's peace,
Rita S.
