Sympathy Card.

Hi everyone, I've been precaricating for a couple of days over a Sympathy card so I sat down this morning and just got on with it. I've also been making 2 special Christmas cards for my boss, 1 for a grandson and 1 for a great-grandson. Her Mum loved the congrats cards I made when Shonah's grandson was born and wondered about a Christmas card for the baby's first Christmas with great-grandson on it. So I made a couple of cards to let her see. They loved them and wanted one each. I've never had an order before! I'll get them finished tomorrow and let you see  them. I was going out for a meal with the WRI tomorrow but it's been cancelled because of the weather!

Here's my Sympathy card. It's for a customer who's just lost her husband. He was a lovely old man, really nice. He'd been ill more than once this year and had got really frail the last time I saw him. I think a lot of people would be at his funeral as most people here would have known him.

I used :-
2 Background stamps, flower image and sentiment :- Hero Arts.
Pearls :- Hobby House.
Ribbon from stash.

I'm a bit disappointed with this photo as you can't really see that the background is stamped with 2 different Hero Arts stamps. It does't show up in the photo but I 3d'd the tulip head and raised up the scalloped rectangle on foam pads too. Unfortunately I can't get a better photo as I've posted the card now!

Hope you like and I'd love to hear what you think.Thanks for looking.
