Heartfelt Sympathy Card - TMS #521

Greetings fellow crafters! It's time again to challenge you to another sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks sketch was designed by Debbie Foster and I think you're really going to like it. To join the fun just create a card using the provided sketch and link it to the challenge by 8 pm EST on Sunday. Click HERE for all the details and design team inspiration. Hope you will play along!

This Heartfelt Sympathy Card will be going to my cousin. Her husband suddenly passed away last week and I know her heart is broken. To make this card I dug through every paper pad I had to find the perfect papers. I finally settled on papers from the So Sophie paper pad by My Mind's Eye (2011). It's one of the first paper pads I bought when I started making cards and I've hoarded it because I love the colors. The yellow butterfly was stamped using one of my retired favorites Watercolor Wings by Stampin' Up! and the sentiment was positioned to extend from the butterfly wings. I know a card can't fix the hurt when a loved one passes, but I hope it helps in some way. Thanks for stopping by!
