Sympathy Card

Unfortunately - I've needed a couple sympathy cards. These are always hard for me to make because of the emotions behind the reason for them.

This particular card was for my neighbor whose husband passed away. He was quite young and left behind his wife and 3 kids. They have sinced moved back to where her family lives and we miss seeing them around.

Sorry for the photo quality - I couldn't get a good picture no matter what I tried.

I stamped the Upsy Daisy flowers in Almost Amethyst and gently tapped it in Elegant Eggplant. Somewhat of Rock-n-Roll, but not to the full extent. I gently sponged the Almost Amethyst around the edge of the stamped piece.

I have plenty to share with you - it is just finding the time to get the pictures loaded and corrected. So, be sure to check back because I may just surprise you with more regular posts!!

Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Thoughts and Prayers
CS: Almost Amethyst, Elegant Eggplant, WW
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Elegant Eggplant
Other: Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Square Bigz Die, Stamping Sponge

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back again!!

Stampin' Hugs,

Karen, this is a truly gracious and beautiful card. Not too overwhelming for a time when everything seems too much. What a wonderful creation :)
