Sympathy Cards

Just a few days ago, an old friend's grandparent died. I have been feeling for her since I lost my own sister in October. Alhough I don't think I have talked to her since High School, she is on facebook with me and I felt moved to make something to send to her. I don't know if I ca find her address, but at the least, I could send it to her parent's house and it would eventually make it her way.

Entering into the Saturday Challenge found here...for dry or heat embossing, of which, I have both!

This is the first completed card that I have made in over 2 months....or maybe more. Hard to tell. Life starts to blurr together when you have 3 kids @ 2, 4, and 6!

I was inspired by a blog from Papertrey Ink at this post. A jungle I did not have...so I used the background style like her with my copics, similar but not exact colors (my collection is large, but not "I have hundreds of followers of my blog" large!).

Top to bottom the colors of mine are BG 49, BG 10, YG03, YG17, BG15

I did use the Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the Papertrey Ink Out on a limb for the sentiment. I think it turned out as a nice clean and simple but stunning card. thank you Nichole Heady for your inspiration/case!

Now...off to google and see if I can find her address or send off an email to find it! :) Thanks for looking!
