Sympathy Card

A dear friend of mine lost her battle with cancer last week; she will be sorely missed by so many people. I made a card to send to her family members, as I am sure they will be bombarded with so many kind thoughts during their time of bereavement, this will be one of many sentiments they will receive.

I used a Darice Julia's Garden EF for the background, rounded all the edges of the card and used a Stampin' Up Heartfelt Blossoms set to stamp the flowers and the sentiment. The white part of the card is sprayed with shimmer mist, but it is so subtle that my camera didn't pick up the sparkles very well. There is a glimpse of the sheen in the second picture below. The card is finished with a knotted ribbon at the bottom, and accented with half pearls.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

Romans 10:9-10
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
