Sympathy Card



Good Saturday morning everyone!!!! Today is my grandson, Gabe's, 6th birthday so we are going shopping later this afternoon for a special birthday present that he picks out himself. I can't wait to see what he chooses!! He changes his mind every few days about his favorite toys so I wanted to catch him in the moment...LOL!!! Anyway....

I made this card last Tuesday for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast . I needed a sympathy card for a friend and  thought the colors for this week's challenge were so peaceful and soothing. The Mojo Monday Sketch #281 was used along with Verve's Forever in Our Hearts set. The papers are from Simple Stories Baby Steps dp and Basic Grey's Cappella dp. The twine, rolled flower and rhinestone finish it off.  

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!!!!

This is lovely for a sympathy card, Joan. Love the muted shades and your sweet rose. And those words are perfect.

Oh Joan, I'm sorry you were in need of a sympathy card this week.
You've created a beautiful one though. Love that Verve set for all the sentiments and images. One of my faves to reach for.

Enjoy your day with your grandson!!! Happy birthday to him :)

Your card is very warm and comforting, sympathy cards are certainly the most difficult. Love the soft colors and perfect sentiment.

Hope Gabe picked out something fun for his birthday gift ;o)
