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?

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

So absolutely gorgeous, Lynn... I just know it will help during this saddest of times. We are at the stage of planning where we get the Johnny's Seed catalog out... guess what color zinnias I'll be having in my garden this year... hmmmm?

Getting this card later on, your friend and her family will appreciate it very much. They will know that you care. It's a lovely card, and I know it will be a comfort to them. You've captured the sketch perfectly. And while they're not my most favorite colors, blues.... Lenten blessings to you. Bev

It's never too late to share your sympathy, Lynn, especially when you do it with a card you made just for them. And orange you glad it's such a lovely card?

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.
