A Sad Occasion for a Card
I received a call from my best friend asking me to make her a sympathy card. Her DH works with a single mom who lost her 10-yr old son in a freak bicycle accident over the weekend. It was difficult to make this card knowing the circumstances, but I added some bashful blue to the card since it was for a boy's mother. The flowers are from Technique Tuesday, stamped with CTMH gray wool, cut out and clear embossed. then popped up on foam squares. I added some Martha Stewart pearls and a diecut with a Sizzix swirl. The blue and white panels were done with the Nestabilities 10 labels, and the background was done with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The sentiment is by MFS, also stamped with CTMH grey wool. The Bow-Easy was used to create the bow and the ribbon is SU's bashful blue.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hug your loved ones tight!
