With Sympathy

Welcome to my new follower, Julie of Crafty Julie's.

We ended 2017 with the sad family news that my uncle had unexpectedly passed away.  This is the card I made to send to my cousin, his daughter.

The panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' e/f, which I used as a background for the Memory Box 'Prim Poppy' die cut.  The three pearls are white, although they look pink in the photo. The phrase 'The camera never lies' is a myth!

I am joining in the following challenges:

Moving Along With the Times Challenge #62 ~ Flowers
4 Craft Chicks Challenge #384 ~ A/G with a twist - Dies/Punches
