With Sympathy

Good Morning All, I hope you are All well, My card today is a very simple design, a dear friend of ours lost her Mum last week, she is not a person who like fussy cards, so hence the design. the image I have used is called Heart butterflies I have decoupaged the butterflies but its not really showing up in the picture, Hand made embossed paper, peel off corners ribbon and stones from stash.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's mom...such times are so difficult to know what to do for the survivors. I'm sure that your friend appreciated the time and love that went into this gorgeous card you made for her.

Those decoupaged butterflies look pretty effective but I am sure they look much prettier in real life... The embossed paper fits in like a hand in glove and the ribbon adds to the elegance. Such a neat card that is.

Such a sad occasion, but a lovely card nevertheless. Unfussy is definitely the best thing for sympathy cards, so I think you hit just the right note, Kevin. CoB
