Sympathy Card

I had been admiring this church design at Jan's Digitals for some time and finally today decided I needed to have that on hand for making sympathy cards. I love the designs and the wonderful sentiments. I know those sentiments will be carried over to other card designs as well. I like the wonderful font of them.



The image included a lot of green but when I saw that pretty pink flower I could not get it out of my mind that perhaps it would look great on a photo I took of some pink satin. So that was what I  used for the background. The digital set is called Church Sympathy.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Jan's Digi Challenge #9-Anything Goes
Artsystamper Challenge #11-Green (hope enough green to qualify)

I like to have a few sympathy cards made ahead of time. And, this will be a set I will be using a lot. Thanks for visiting and I wish all of you a great rest of the day.

God bless,
Verna

Who knew pink satin could be used as a background! You are brilliant, Verna. This is such a beautiful card by itself and then in front of the satin, it looks stunning.
