Friday's Challenge Card

I learned late last night that a friend's father passed away a couple of days ago. I wanted to make a card and mail it right away especially since I was not able to attend the visitation nor the funeral. It's difficult to suddenly lose someone you are very close to and I am praying for the family.



I was hoping Taylor would have a challenge sketch today to help get some creative juices flowing...and she did.




It was difficult choosing colors. Many of my sympathy cards are done in softer colors. I hope these brighter colors will help convey the hope that she has in God that she will see her father again.


The Purely Pomegranate layer is embossed with a cuttlebug folder (I think textile). The tulips are from the retired SU set Watercolor Garden II- one of those sets I can't seem to part with.
The sentment is from Hero Arts.
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, and Purely Pomegranate (one of last year's in-colors.
Ink: same colors as paper
Accessories: Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Curly Label Punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, brads

This is absolutely lovely. Even though it's for a (sad) occasions it's a beautiful card with a very heartfelt touch.
