sympathy

My good friend has just lost her father-in-law so I made this card for them. I struggled with suitable images for this card so decided to go with an encouraging Bible verse.

Now I cannot take credit for this design as I am so inspired when I visit Amy's blog, that I decided to 'case' one of her cards. Now mine is a mere imitation! I love her style..a bit distressed but also so fabulous in her layouts and choice of papers. Everything is wow, wow, wow!

The stamp si from the Unity Stamp co. where you can find lots of Bible verses. The Dp is from SU. The flowers are punched and the flourish is a quickutz die. The papers are stitched together and a little bit distressed. I love doing that bit but it does make an awful mess on the floor!

I did decorate the inside of this card but I had written the message already so decided not to show.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get some time to craft!
