With Sympathy

A sympathy card made today for a neighbour who sadly lost her husband a few days ago.  I used the Memory Box 'Prim Poppy' die as a silhouette, but despite the sad occasion, I wanted to add a little colour.  I had a little snippet of the raspberry pink pearlised card left over from the card I posted yesterday, so I used this for matting.
Usually I prefer the sentiment 'Thinking of You', but somehow the sentiment 'With Sympathy' seemed more appropriate for this particular neighbour - I'm not sure why.  I punched out three tiny flowers from the pink card to finish off my card.

  2. Simply gorgeous Liz. Sadly we do need these kind of cards. But they do give comfort because people just sence there has been put in love to make them.
