With Sympathy

No one ever wants to make a Sympathy Card, but unfortunately I have had to. It is not myself I feel sorry for, but the recipient. What an awful time of year to lose someone................

I used :
A Beautiful off white Shantung Silk type CS
A DO card topper
A very beautiful digi from Digistamps For Joy called Fleur de Lis
I gently coloured with Spectrum Noir
I added a very discreet DO ribbon
I finished with three pearls
I find this just enough, this is not the occasion to over embellish

    Thanks for joining in with us this time at Divas by Design.


  15. Such a pretty card. Is the cs textured? It looks lovely in the photo and paired with the digi. It is sad when we need a sympathy card, but I imagine your friend will very much appreciate your lovely thoughtfulness.

    So glad you could join us in the Great Impressions Stamps December Challenge! Hope to see you again soon!
