Forever In Our Hearts

I'm telling you; aren't sympathy cards just the hardest to do?  Urgh; breaks my heart - particularly this one.  But, let's skip the details of why and just move on to the creation, K?  I didn't think you would mind!

I used Mercy's 100th sketch - kinda cool eh?  You can see the sketch HERE; the papers are Sugardrop from Memory Box - I always seem to turn to these papers for sympathy cards, so soft and subtle - love 'em!  Everything was sponged in VersaMagic Jumbo Java.  The sentiment was also stamped in the same ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I have had the Zva Crystals F-O-R-E-V-E-R...they are actually 2 shades of pink intertwined and so beautiful; delighted I could use them on this card!

I added mushroom colored dots to the scalloped circle (Adirondack Dimensionals), such a beautiful and unique color; I thought it worked really well with the papers.

Thanks for popping by; I hope you have a GREAT weekend!  Hugs, ~M.

You're right Michele...sympathy cards are so hard to do. I've been putting one off for too long so will have to knuckle down and do it. Your card is absolutely gorgeous such a beautiful colour combo. Perfect! xx
