With Sympathy


Thanks for all your sweet comments yesterday!  They sure help to brighten my day!  But on a sad note, we have another couple who are friends of ours, who on Saturday, she lost both parents.  Having already lost one parent, I can't even imagine this tragedy.  I know time will for sure heal but there will always be that part that wonders how life would be if their loved one was still with them.  I know I do.

So in need of a SYMPATHY card for our friends, I came up with this using Reverse Confetti stamps and dies.  Using Petals 'n Posies with the matching Confetti Cuts dies, this card came together quick and easy.  I went with some soft colors as well as the soft gray stripes for the background.  And I just couldn't help adding in a few clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!
