When I saw the recent Fusion challenge, I immediately thought of an Emily Dickinson quote which is a favorite of mine.  The challenge has the option to use either the photo inspiration or the sketch or both.  My card is a combination of both.  The quote is computer generated because my stamp of that quote didn't fit in the opening very well.
I am sending this to a friend who is having surgery next week for colon cancer.

Dies: MB - Perched Reed Bird & Grove Branch
