I hate to make sympathy cards,,,,,,,I like knowing that my loved one will receive a handmade card from me at a difficult moment,,,,,but I dislike what they stand for. sigh.
Unfortunately, there's been a death in the family of a dear friend. Sympathy card called for. Since I enjoyed the sketch this month over at the Justrite Friday Challenge , I decided to go with that for my card.
Here's the sketch that we were to follow this challenge!
Here's my rendition of this great sketch.
I used a fabulous Justrite set called "Be Strong". It's so appropriate to so many situations and has several phrases of comfort in cases of illness and/or death,,,,,,,,as well as several support ribbons and frames. I've used a phrase and a frame from that set. Here's the stamp and the little bird house close up.
Here's a pic of the little bird I fussy cut from the fabulous Webster's Papers digi papers,,,,,,,,
