Thinking of You

Hi Everyone!

Recently a couple of friends lost their dear husband and father.
I must admit I never make sympathy cards.
Not that I don't know how but I just find it is the most difficult thing to make.
In the end, I made this Thinking of You card instead.

I got the inspiration from a Polish Cardlift challenge, here.

Designer paper: Pion Design Studio of Memories Collection
Dies: Magnolia and Memory Box

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
WOC pale pink and white lily flowers, small ivory gardenia, 
white sweetheart blossom flower, ivory button twine,
tiny pearl cluster stem, 3mm pale pink pearl string.

I barely ever make sympathy cards too. It's just so hard to make them! I think the "thinking of you" card is perfect for this occassion and yours is stunning.
Hugs! xx

Hi Katie, though the occasion is the sad of all, you card turned out stunning!!! The pion design studio papers were the best choice, the flowers combined in such a gorgeous layout and of course your creative hands made this creation look amazing.
PS - The Polish crafters are very talented and I like their style too, I know why your were inspired by them.
