Sympathy Card

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I have a sympathy card that I want
to share with you. I pray that this will in some way
help ease the grief for the lovely lady that I am
sending this to.

Its hard to see but the lace has distress ink on
 it and it is a lot more cream then white, but it sure
came out white in the pictures for some reason.
Actually the last picture is more accurate of the colors.
Maybe I just need another camera
 or a real photographer LOL LOL

I used Just Rite and SU stamps.
Nestibilities label four was also used.
Beautiful Mirabelle paper and SU cardstock.
Memento ink as well as my favorites Distress inks.
The pretty lace is from my stash, it was pregathered,
 but I took out the gathering so it would lay flat.
The brads are from SU and some unknown ones.
You can see in the last picture
the envelope I did to match the card. I think adding
 decorations to the envelope really finishes off the
 whole project and so much of the time I can actually use
 up left over scrapes from the project to do it with.
So there you have it my sympathy card.

 Well I pray your not in need of any sympathy
cards, but if you do I hope this inspires you.

Hugs and Blessings to all of you!
