JAI #199 and CASology- Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are always hard to make, and this one was no exception. A lady in my mother's group suddenly lost her husband this week, and with a son my age I cannot even fathom what she must be going through. Reaching out with a handmade card is my way of showing that I am thinking of her.

I embossed the background and added three flowers that I fussy cut from a stamp. Some hemp tied in a bow was the finishing touch.

Joining in with this week's JAI sketch challenge and CASology.

Cardstock: Pear, White Daisy
Embellishments: Black Hemp
Embossing Folder: Damask
Inks: Blush, Creme Brulee, Honey, Black.
