A Simple Sympathy Card

Sympathy

I was in need of a sympathy card for a dear friend whose mother recently passed away and since I was crunched for time, this was the result.

I absolutely love Stampin' Up's Thoughts and Prayers sympathy set.  The images in the set just make me smile and have such a nice flow to them.  Plus the sentiments are wonderful.

I tend to like to use white or cream with a pop of colour on my sympathy cards, and pink was the "pop colour" of choice this time round.  An embossed background, some silver pearls and the ribbon jazzed it up just the right amount.

Thanks for dropping in today :)



What's In It?
Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers (Stampin' Up)
Paper:  Pretty in Pink, White
Ink:  Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink, Going Grey
Accessories: Lacy Circle and Circle Nesties, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, 5/8" Pink Satin Ribbon, Button, Silver Twine, Silver Half Pearls, Glue Dots, Dimensionals
