With Sympathy

Hello everyone! It's finally Friday... I am back with a couple of cards for the Anni-VERVE-sary sketch challenge. I used sketch AVS2010B for both of my cards.

This was a sad week for our family as my mom lost her oldest sister. Farewell, Auntie Fran.. may you rest in peace... I didn't have any sympathy cards on hand, so I decided to whip a couple of them up. I used Verve's Forever in Our Hearts on both of these cards.

I used papers from the Kaisercraft Lush collection once again. These colors may not be typical "sympathy" card colors, but I liked the soothing floral patterns. The cards are simple sentiment cards. I finished them off with some pearls, a Prima flower and some stitching. The sentiments are cut using a Spellbinders Long Rectangle Nestabilities die. I sponged the center with Versamagic Wheat before removing the cardstock from the die, then I stamped the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
