With Sympathy

I always find Sympathy cards tough to make.....I know, I've said it before and it's true. I just want to make sure that the card conveys a caring look and message. It's too bad that cards aren't just for Happy Occasions, but maybe a hand stamped card in this case really shows your regard for the receiver.

I made this card for a dear friend of my Mother, who lost a loved one. I hope it brings her comfort at this sad sad time.

This is pretty much a clean and simple design. Image is from Stampin' Up! Colour combo includes Almost Amethyst and White. I used a Quick Cutz embossing template to add a little dimension to the back ground. I cut a Nestablilities Scalloped Square in Half to use as a base for the Sentiment, which is also from Stamping up. The Ribbon and the decorated stick pin are from the Pretties kit from SU!
Still practicing with my Prism Pencils, I added a wee bit of Stickles here and there to highlight the flowers and butterfly.
I've been working on release projects, so my blog posts have been scarce as of late.
See you soon with something new!!!!
