With Deepest Sympathy



A dear friend of mine lost her dad about 10 days ago and I am very behind in getting a card in the mail to her and her family.  I didn't have any sympathy cards already made so I made when up on Monday night following the CASE this Sketch layout.  Love their sketches and appreciate that this came together quickly. It will be sent to her with lots of love and prayers.

And yes, I used orange again...Michele pointed out to me that I use orange a ton and I never realized how much I do use it!  Still love it!  Do you have a favorite go to color?

  2. A super stunning card Lynn and great use of the sketch. There's nothing wrong with Orange it's zingy, fun and sunny. You could check out the AAA Card challenge and enter there - there's lots of orange going on! Sarah x

You've captured the sketch perfectly. And while they're not my most favorite colors, blues.... Lenten blessings to you. Bev

  16. They say Orange is the new Black (wink!!) .I am with you on the color orange ...it's such a happy color! If I remember it correctly, it was in trend in the 70s!!? All jokes aside, this card will lift your friend's spirit.
