Sympathy Card

This week I heard that the mother of a classmate of mine passed away. She was such a wonderful and talented lady! When she became a widow she started up her own florist shop and the bouquets she arranged were out of this world beautiful! I remember one time she did a gorgeous bouquet of red roses and evergreens as it was during the Christmas season. So I decided that my card would carry a similar bouquet in memory of her.

The roses are from the Gina K. Designs A Year of Flowers 2 set and the sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Sympathy Duo set. I used a masking technique to create a multiple set of roses and then colored them with Copics. I used the evergreen bough die from Diemond Dies to add my greenery behind the popped up roses. I just love that beautiful evergreen die and will be finding many occasions for it's use I am sure.

Well, another week is gone again! Time goes so fast it seems but then I guess that is always the case when one is busy! I hope your week was a great one.

God bless,

What a beautiful testament of her life, Verna - that you specifically recall that arrangement, and customized the card to remind the recipient of how special her mother was. She will appreciate your masterpiece for a very long time! xo

So sorry that you had to make a sympathy card. But a special one it is. I love making these kind of cards the most. Ones with special meaning for the maker and the recipient.

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
