Close As a Memory Sympathy Card


This card has no sketch, color challenge, or any other challenge attached to it, it was simply stamped from the heart for a friend of mine whose father passed away last week after a long battle. I know a card can't really bring much comfort but hopefully she'll know that I'm thinking of her. The Stampin' Up! set I used is called "Close As a Memory". The inside sentiment reads

"Your loved one will always be
as close as a memory,
and the God of all comfort
as close as a prayer."

I stamped the front sentiment in Always Artichoke, and hand colored the flowers with Bashful Blue and Always Artichoke SU! markers before stamping them. I went over the blue flowers with my opaque Sakura Glaze pen to add some subtle shimmer. The dark green designer paper is from last year's Wintergreen. A hatpin with pearls and a crystal from my Pretties Kit is run through a small bow of Sahara Sand ribbon (one of last year's In Colors that I wish would become permanent...)

Thanks for looking!!

This card shows just how good you're getting! No color challenge, no design challenge, just, as you say, from the heart. Beautiful card, Margaret. Thanks for sharing.
