Mojo Sympathy

Hello friends.. I am back with a card using Julee's latest Mojo Monday #160. It is with a heavy heart that I sat down to make this sympathy card and finally to write up this post. A friend of mine just tragically lost her 5-year-old son, and this is the card that I made for her. I am deeply saddened for the family's loss. They are all in our thoughts and prayers.

I pulled out an older Papertrey Ink set that I had not inked up yet, With Sympathy. I stamped the sentiment, cut it out with a Spellbinders Long Rectangle Nestability die, then I added some light sponging while it was still in the die. The small partial frame on the left side is cut out of Simply Chartreuse felt with the Mat Stack 4 die. I added some silk ribbon, stitching and ivory pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Here's a detail shot of the sentiment:

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and make sure to give your loved ones some extra hugs.. I know that I will.
