Today a little something quiet and reserved for a precious great aunt who recently passed away. She was a lady in the true sense of the word. Kind, considerate and strong. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends as well as our community in which she was highly involved. So in her honor...
Like most, I have a hard time making sympathy cards. Despite a lovely stamp I own that says "with sympathy" I just rarely can stamp that on my card. I typically skip that particular sentiment and opt for a hand written message wishing the loved ones peace in their hearts. Just works for me that way. I also like to use bird images on sympathy cards. Birds in flight always make my heart feel hopeful and I like that message :)
The gray background for the bird and the elegant design stamped in grey on the kraft cardstock are both from Motif. Aren't they beautiful? I added a bold striped ribbon and the elegant half pearls from my friend Elise by SU! Thanks girlfriend! You know how much I love these!
