Sympathy Card

It's funny how some people come into your life and stay while other's come and go. Funnier yet is the association you have with these people! For me some of these would be my former in-laws. I have kept in touch with them over the years, even visiting them before we moved to Germany so Breanna could have some time with her "Grandma Betty and Grandpa Cal"! Unfortunately, Grandpa Cal passed away recently after a tough fight with pancreatic cancer. He was such a sweet, talented and giving person and I'm so sorry he's gone! I decided to make Grandma Betty her card as she is one of my biggest fans of my crafts - actually usually adds to my craftiness with her own! I knew she'd appreciate a card made by hand, unique in it's own right!

I went with all soft colors here using mainly SU cardstock. I ran the shimmery white through my cuttle bug for a little texture. The flowers are from Michael's and I just swiped them a little bit with pink to coordinate with the pink layer. I also embossed the words. I thought it would make it a more elegant card. I hope she likes it! I hope you do too!

Here it is;
