Thoughts and Prayers Sympathy for a Friend

Today's card is a simple and elegant sympathy card for a friend. Thoughts and Prayers is my go-to set for sympathy cards. I used Pear Pizazz and Marina Mist markers to color the image and stamped it onto the Whisper White oval.

I also added some of the Basic Pearls to the centers of the flowers.

It is so hard to make these cards when you know a friend is hurting. I'm going to put a few more of these together to have on hand when the need arises. I'm hoping I won't need another one for a long time.

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers
Paper: Pear Pizazz, Whisper White, Greenhouse Gala dsp
Ink: Pear Pizazz, Marina Mist
Accessories: Coluzzle, Marina Mist sating ribbon, Basic Pearls Jewels, Mat Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool

I love the card. I will definitely be using it for inspiration. I acutally have to make a Sympathy card. I should make a couple too. I will have to check out that stamp set. Mt. Horeb?!?! My brother lives there. I live further east in Oconomowoc, WI.
