In Our Thoughts


My daughter asked me for a sympathy card – it is so sad to know she has a friend that have passed away.  I can’t even begin to image the grief of losing a child.

I wanted to keep the colors soft and serene so I went with a black and gray color palette – the photo almost looks like it is B&W but it a light shade of gray!

Papers: Bazzill Cardstock, Striped DP – ???

Embossing Folders: Cuttlebug

Die: Tree and Small Butterflies – Memory Box, Labels Fourteen – Spellbinders

Punch: Butterfly – Martha Stewart, Border Punch – EK Success

Sentiment: A Digital Freebie but I’m sorry I don’t know the artist

Embellishments: Ribbon and Gems

Sketch: Sunday Sketch and Stamp

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Dee
