Condolence Card

Hello dear blog friends. This is a card I did not want to make. Sadly on Thursday afternoon my friend died.

My Card

 I used SB M-Bossabilities to emboss a piece of white card and matted this onto pale gold pearlescent card and then onto a 5 x 7 inch card. The dies are SB Diamond Strips and Accents and Radiant Rectangles. I computer generated the sentiment and die cut it with the smallest die from SB Detailed Scallops  The cala lilies, pearls and ribbon were from my stash. I made two cards but John preferred this one . I will show the other in another post.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

  20. Magnificent, Christine. It's so hard to make sympathy cards, but when it's someone who was a friend, it's nearly impossible. In any case, I'm so glad you entered it our "Sympathy or Thinking of You" challenge this week over at Perfect Sentiment. Please play again soon. :-D
