The second card reminds me of that question “if you can sit down on this bench and have a conversation with anyone past or present who would it be?” For that question this is the most amazing setting that I can picture my conversation with Bob Marley 😉. Or my late brother. We could just sit here and talk for hours. Through the sun set and sun rise continuing our conversation forever. This is pulling at my heart strings quite a bit. I LOVE the use of all white because it’s angelic and it reminds me of purity and heaven. Excellent job!!
