I had to create a sympathy card this week for a wonderful friend who lost her Uncle a few days ago. As always, I took my inspiration from a few challenges:
1. Freshly Made Sketches
I really thought this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was beautiful.
2. All Sorts Challenge
This is a challenge that I have never played along with before. I look forward to being inspired by this design team more in the future. This week's theme is "Spring Flowers" and I thought this new stamp set from Stampin' Up!'s Occasion Catalogue would be the perfect choice - it is called Love is Kindness.
Here is my card:
I decided I wanted a different sentiment than the one that was included on the Love is Kindness stamp so I fussy cut out the flowers and used the sentiment from the stamp set Love & Sympathy.
