With Sympathy

Hi everyone...I really hate when you have to make a sympathy card, and this is no exception. This card is for Vicky Gould, whose husband passed away unexpectedly last evening. Please see the thread here if you want to send a card to Vicky. I am sure receiving cards from her SCS Family will bring her some comfort.

I chose to use this week's Color Challenge, CC188, Basic Pirouettes for this card, as I missed this challenge this week.

I really struggled with this, as I feel as though a sympathy card should be on the simple side. I used the Inspired By Nature set as my starting point, and added the butterfly from Dreams Du Jour. The background of the card and the stamped panel were stamped with Canvas in Pink Pirouette. The sentiment is from Beautiful Borders.

I added some piercing around the stamped panel, and some vintage brads to balance it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
