With Sympathy

With Sympathy
(JAI 143 - Colour Challenge)

I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend who's mother passed away at the grand old age of 100 years + 3 days.  She and her hubby went all the way to the USA for the big birthday party but ended up spending most of the time at her mother's bed side, in intensive care, on that special day.


I  already had an idea for a very CAS layout for a sympathy card but I needed some colour inspiration.  I saw the combo at Just Add Ink and thought, why not?

Here's the Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Creative Elements, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Early Espresso
Card Stock:  Tangerine Tango, Sahara Sand, Marina Mist
Accessories:  Square Lattice EF, Basic Pearls, Bitty Banners Framelits, Stamping Sponges, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by,

Wow that's a pretty fabulous milestone birthday. Such a shame she wasn't well on the day.

You've created a lovely card Bron, loving all the little pearls.

Just lovely. Sympathy cards in some ways are nice, they are a reflection on life and they make me stop and appreciate my own life and the lives of those I love. I like that this a bright card...like a celebration of life as well as being simplistic and beautiful. Prayers to you & your friend.

Simple but beautiful Bron.

100 Years - how wonderful that she celebrated that milestone - I think the swirly on your card is a fitting symbol of the her era. Chantell

I think the card is perfect for its purpose Bron. Its subdued but very pretty which is a lovely way to remember someone who was obviously a very important person to her family.
