Sharing in Your Sorrow

Hi! Today was a good day. It was so nice and cool all day; I got a new haircut and style, and I got in some stamping time! Stamping is always good! :)

Unfortunately, today I made a sympathy card. It was for some family friends who lost their loved one yesterday, so I made this one with a heavy heart. Why, oh why don't I keep these kinds of cards on hand? They're always so hard to make!

I used CardPatterns Sketch 137 for the layout. These pretty papers are from the My Mind's Eye A Beautiful Life collection. The border trim is the Dainty Lace Border dienamics by My Favorite Things. I just ordered some dies from them, and I LOVE their dies! They are just fabulous!

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and did some sponging with Memento Potter's Clay. There's lots of stitching on this card! I added a Vintage Cream ribbon, a Wild Orchid Crafts flower, and some pearls to finish it off.

That's it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Kraft, Vintage Cream
