With Sympathy

Good morning, I hope that this sunny day finds you all happy and well.


This is the type of card that you never want to have to make. Unfortunately we were given the sad news the other day that my boss's wife is expected to pass away very soon. As the funeral will be held several hours away all that we can do is send our condolences in the form of a card to let him know that we will be thinking of him at this sad time.



I wanted to make a card that was serene and simple so I have pulled out some stamps and had a go with some of my Distress Inks and my new Distress markers. The colours from the ColorQ challenge were perfect for this card. The gorgeous background ia a Tim Holtz stamp that I received for Christmas and had yet to ink up. I have added a sentiment and a butterfly both from Hero Arts to finish it all off.
