Sympathy Card

There are some things in life that are always difficult and I find making sympathy cards one of them. 

My Uncle died last night and although he has been unwell for a while it was still a shock.  I made this to send to my Auntie as I won't get to see her for a while, unfortunately.

I have been waiting for ages for my April Unity KOTM (must have got held up with all the flight chaos) 

It finally came this morning and these stamps were in it - perfect for what I needed. :) The flowers were die cut from white card with a Sizzix die and I embossed a line along the back of each petal to add detail. Then sponged them with turquoise Versacolor ink, the petals were curled up slightly and then layered together.  The ribbon is simple organza.

See you soon.  xx

I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle - my sympathies to you and your family
