Deepest Sympthy

Hey all my crafty friends! 

The time had come again for me to make a sympathy card.  One of my dear friends has just lost a cousin to Leukemia.  He was in his twenties (way too young) and had battled bravely for years with this ugly disease.  I pray that he is resting in peace, in the arms of an angel now that his fight is over.

I struggled with how to construct this card; what would be appropriate.  I decided upon this Magnolia stamp and colored her in muted tones.


The papers are from the My Minds Eye collection called Lost and Found - Union Square.  I cut out some hearts on my Cricut Expression and created a faux banner in the corner complete with some American Crafts twine.  The shadow cuts were placed in the opposite corners.  I also used a new Spellbinders die that I received from a good friend of mine.  The cabbage roses are from the Spare Parts 3D Brown Paper Flower assortment.  The sentiment stamp in the bottom corner is from Taylored Expressions and was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking a peek.  Tell those you love that you love and hug them tightly as often as possible.
