Freshly Made Sympathy

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We had a great weekend here and we're looking forward to a busy week.  A dear friend of mine's husband lost his grandmother this week and I wanted to send a card to let them know that we are thinking of and praying for them.

I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketches card this week for my starting point.  I must say this card took several attempts...I tried my hardest to use a circle for the centre but alas...I decided a rectangle fit better with the card.

Tomorrow I will be back with a baby card for another dear friend!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cardstock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Stamps: Elements of Style, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Word Window Punch, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Dimensionals
