Good morning my friends...
Unfortunately, it was that time to make a sympathy card for my husband's friend who lost a family member unexpectedly. He was very young; left a young bride and two small children - 4 and 1 years old. It's times like these where I sit silently and wonder....why does this kind of stuff happen?
Sometimes there are no answers and sometimes, there just aren't any words. And while I sat at my craft desk wondering what to do that would be appropriate, I just used a gorgeous image from A Day For Daisies that I recently won. Usually, I just go with just a sentiment as a focal point, but I think this image is gorgeous all on it's own and conveys the sympathy we feel for my husband's friend without having to say anything all.
Normally, I would never think of using pink on a sympathy card, but I think its subtle enough here and I used some Colorbox Chalk Ink in black to try soften it up as well. She is colored in Copics and the the papers are a mix of Pink Paislee's London Market and Prima's Almanac Collection. The image and the papers are all distressed in that chalk ink. I used a Fiskars punch for the border and a gorgeous black flower from Petaloo.
Remember to say I love you to those that you love today...and thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
