It's always sad to let a family member or friend pass on, but it's such a relief and a blessing when you know that they belong to the Lord before they go. Recently, my cousin lost a long battle with cancer (I. Hate. Cancer.) and went to be with the Lord. My mom and I wanted to send a card and gift to his mom and needed a card.
Flowers are just always good to use for sympathy cards, but this set just works perfectly. I chose to do it as a silhouette and color the background of the image layer. I used blue and yellow for that background, but you can't see the yellow very well in the picture.
The flower dies at the bottom are from Your Next Stamp .... the Groovy die set. The butterfly is also from YNS, but was in the Spring die set. I thought it interesting that I could use the Groovy flowers for a sympathy card. The background layer is embossed, and the image layer and shadow were cut using a Spellbinders' die.
My inspiration for this card came from the YNS Fun Friday Challenge. The pastel stripes and colors on this card remind me of the pastel fruits and smoothies they used on there.
Hope your Saturday is filled with joy and creative juices, and I hope you have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!
