With Our Sympathy

While at the beach a couple of weeks ago, I got a call from my sister at 11:30 p.m., telling me that a former high school boyfriend had passed away suddenly two days after turning 51.  My heart was broken for his family.  He was a wonderful guy, and surely to be missed by his wife, children, and parents.  I made this card to send to his wife.  Next I'll make a card for his parents.

The card is 4 1/2" x 5 3/4".  The pink scalloped rectangle is a DCWV card front.  I used some My Mind's Eye paper for the background and found the doily in my stash.  I cut a 2 1/4" circle using my George Cricut cartridge and then cut a shadow of it in green.  I added some Prima flowers and a jeweled flourish from my stash.  The sentiment is computer generated and punched.  I also added some blue chalk around the edges.  The pearls are all Queen & Co. (I think).

Thanks for looking and for leaving those great comments that make my day.
