It's not been a great start to the new year, this is the second sympathy card I've had to make this year for someone who has lost her husband. I used a lili of the valley stamp and coloured it in with my spectrum pencils. The blue looks a bit dark on the left hand side and I've taken some of the colour off with a rubber since photographing the card. The sentiment is from the same set as the other sympathy card I posted. I can't claim to be deeply religious but I know the recipient finds her faith a comfort and so I thought it appropriate. I used the tattered lace rectangles and pearl rectangles as they were still on the table and mounted the image on 1mm foam tape to add a little definition. I used the left over scraps of stamping card and purple card from the previous sympathy card and so I think I might take this card over to Snippets playground as I need a go on the swings to cheer me up!
