With Sympathy

I hate needing Sympathy cards. I really do. I needed this one to send to my aunt as my cousin passed away this last Sunday. He lived the last several years trapped in a body that had already given up on him. I hope he's in a better place.
Card Recipe:
Stamps~ Warmest Regards (SU) Flower (RSF)
Ink~ Perfect Plum, Artichoke
Paper~ Perfect plum, Sahara Sand, DP from PC Super Slab
Accessories~ SU ribbon, MM brads, distresser
I went to my weekly sketch for this card. Following a sketch gives me a starting point. Sometimes I'll start with a color combo or a DP that I want to use, but I usually have a launch pad of some sort. That Provo Craft Super Slab my hubby bought me is where I started as well. The DP comes from there as well as the card stock sticker strips.
This last summer I was chosen by
Rubber Stamping Fun to review one of their new stamp sets. I was sent an awesome set which includes these flowers as well as 3 verses on friendship and another flower image as well. I've used those sentiments MANY times over the last few months and find the flowers to be perfect for a Sympathy or other Thinking of You type card.
I'm babysitting this morning so I better get ready. Thanks for visiting me today!

I agree, sympathy cards are the hardest for me.
Your card is beautiful!

Sympathy cards really are tough (in fact, I had to make one earlier this week, too!) but I love what you've done here.

Great card Angel!

I too was picked by RSF for a review set, but so far it hasn't come..Lucky you! Those sets were pretty gorgeous IMO.
