"With Sympathy"


I have never made a sympathy card before. This is my first one. I guess I feel bad about making a beautiful card for such a sad occasion. That and I have never needed one until now. This is for my mother in law. Her sister passed away last weekend on my mother in laws birthday. She was the youngest of 8 kids. Which makes it even sadder. So, I decided to make her a card. I think it turned out beautiful. I really like the black and white. I don't think I have made one of these cards either. I notice on the scan that the flowers are kinda purple. I think I will go over them with the black marker and make them a little darker.

Rochelle, such a wonderful card I love the black and white and I am positive your MIL will love it also. I have a tip for you on the SU basic black, it is almost a purple they are aware of this not sure if they will do anything. I now use black staz-on for anything I need stamped in black you get a true black that way and it is water color proof as well.
