May You Find Comfort
A sympathy card for a dear friend who lost her father last week - so terribly sad. She lost her mom around the same time last year. I can't image how she is feeling. I will be getting this out to her this week.
To create this card, I pulled my inspiration from this week's challenge at CardPatterns - Sketch 147:
I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right. The base of the card is Gina K's Pure Luxury card stock in Kraft. The designer paper I used is from the My Mind's Eye - So Sophie - Graceful 6x6 paper pad. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado - Kathy Davis, which I stamped and then cut out the shape by hand. I added a mat of designer paper under the sentiment that I cut out and embossed with Nestabilities Labels Eight. For the bottom border, I used a piece of frayed canvas and then added some Prima flowers and leaves. The centers are small yellow pearls. I added some smaller flowers to the sentiment as well. All sponging was done using Memento Close to Cocoa ink. Two small vintage buttons from Grandmom's stash were added to the corners to complete the card.
I hope you have a great start to your week!
