A Sympathy Card

Here is a Sympathy Card I made today.

I used a Gorjuss Stamp called 'Guardian Angel'. DP that is very old and I have no idea who made it - sorry. The card stocks are all from SU - Whisper White, Ballet Blue and Melon Mambo. The image was stamped on WW card stock coloured with Copics and then I used my
Atyou Spica gold pen for her hair and her heart necklace. Both the wings of the Angel and the bear have 'Stardust' Stickles on them. After the stickles were dried I wrinkled the image by balling it up in my hand and then distressed it with a distress tool and also Tim Holtz 'Weathered Wood Ink'. The image was cut with my Nesties and then double mounted on both of the card stocks. I put a double flower together with a Sterling Silver Spacer ring as well as a brad and mounted the flower with dimensional tape. The Sentiment was cut with a label punch and then the I cut the blue background for it with the fancy label punch. I poked holes in the blue, and mounted it also on to dimensional tape.

Here is the inside left of the card - just simple:

I used the same papers as the outside and added SU beautiful white silk ribbon which I dyed with SU Ballet Blue ink to match the paper.

The right side of the card:
The Sentiments are from 'Papertrey Ink - In case you can't read the inside it says : Wishing you Hope in the midst of sorrow, Comfort in the midst of pain.
You can see that I started to write on the card before I realized I hadn't taken pictures of it yet!! - I stopped after I wrote ' Dear' LOL..........
Thanks for taking a look at my card.
I am off to my mother's for two weeks - so you won't see me again for awhile. Take care .......
Love Candy

Candy... what can I say? This is such a heartfelt and beautifully made sympathy card. I just never know what to do or say either. Thank you for showing us your card. Looking forward to when you get back home and make your next card - but enjoy the time visiting with your mother.

Your card is so pretty and sweet, nicely finished inside and out. I love that paper. Don't we all have tons of old papers just begging to be used? Gosh, I'm overflowing with it!
