Thoughts and Prayers Sympathy Card

 I think as a card maker,one of the hardest cards to make is a sympathy card. Especially when you need it. 

I love making cards for other's, to bring them joy and a smile. But with a sympathy card it's different. You just pray that somehow your card will bring them a little comfort in knowing you are thinking of them. 

So today I am sharing with you a sympathy card that I made for a friend that lost her sister to Cancer.  

 I created this card using a digital image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I love that it already has the sentiment with it. The embossing folder I used is called Victoria.

 Colored the flowers with alcohol markers and added a green sheer ribbon with a gold sparkle trim. Also added one diamond gem. 

Here is a link to Bugaboo Stamps If you would like to check them out. They are having a Christmas in July sale going on. All images are 50% off. There is a code on their site you have to enter at checkout.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card I created and hope you can make it back. Blessings to you all.

  7. Gorgeous card Cindy. Thanks for reminding me of your blog name. I can't seem to find anything in my favorites; because when I changed computers, it made separate listings and messed it up. Now when I save someone's blog, it just goes into never never land. LOL! Love your coloring. Have a great day! Hugs, Gloria
