Thanks. It's pretty simple, she is so beautiful and serene here that I didn't think she needed more than wings and a crown.

Thank you all Smiley. A lot of my childhood was spent in what my sister calls the "Windsor-Detroit" area. Really, if you come from there you might know what is meant by that. And if not you can't actually imagine what Detroit was like from the 70's to the 90's. Aretha is important to me for a lot of reasons, not only that, but she's from my origin location, you know? She gets extra points for calling that place her home base for life.
Motor city. Nothing like it...

I love this card!  I have been lurking for awhile and I wanted to share how much I appreciate your tribute to Aretha.

Thank you so much for saying so. I felt like there really wasn't enough hooplah when she passed but honestly, could there ever be? What an incredible being she was.

I couldn't agree more!
