Sympathy Card

This was a spur of the moment card creation as I found a need for a sympathy card and had none in my supply on hand. 


I used the flowers and leaves from the Spring Blossoms set from the Shabby Spring TV Kit. The sentiment and label are from the Sympathy Label duo set. I stamped with Red Hot and Warm Cocoa Gina K. Designs inks. My card stock was Warm Cocoa and Kraft from Gina K. Designs. I made a layered flower design by using both the larger and smaller versions of the bloom and added some bling for the center. My ribbon came from the kit and was a perfect compliment to the design and with that ribbon I added a single knot bow to the center. And, again I added more bling on the sentiment panel.

Normally, I would not have chosen these colors but after I had it finished I did like them together. It reminds me more of a Fall card though then a Spring one though.

I have entered this in the  Mod Squad Blog Challenge and with the knotted bow I thought it would work for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Stamp TV as well. 

I hope all of you are having a super day! We are in the midst of a snow, sleet and freezing rain type of day so I guess I am glad I took time to stamp a bit. Now after lunch it is back to the final cleaning I hope. LOL
God bless, Verna

What a totally beautiful sympathy card, Verna. It is touching, elegant and soft. I'm sorry you need to give one of these out. Longing for the time when there is no more death or mourning, sorrow or tears. Many hugs to you. ♥

Beautiful card, Verna. The unusual colour scheme (for me!) really works. It's a very serene card for a very sad occasion.

This is a gorgeous card for a sympathy card Verna. Love it. This nice, pick you up type are the ones received most after hubby passed away, and can honestly say that people need this. Not the dull dreary old types. Thanks for sharing.

wow. just commented and not sure if hit the wrong key or just not paying attention. If this is the second comment from me, just delete. Said that this is the type of card to receive. Not the dull dreary ones. Most received were nice like this and it really makes a difference. Love this one. TFS
