Sympathy Card

     Sympathy cards are the most difficult cards for me to make and I suspect that's true for most of us.  I'm never able to get a stash of them put by so end up making them as needed.  The occasions are always sad and stressful for those left behind, suffering the loss, but it seems even more difficult when the loss is felt by a parent who has lost a child.  In this case, close family friends have lost their 'special needs' daughter at the age of 19.
   

I pulled colors from Cupcake Inspirations.


     The image (from A Creative Need) is colored with ProMarkers and the sentiment is from MHK Designs.  I wanted something very CAS so limited embellishment to just a bow-tie bow, hand-tied.  

     Challenges:

     I know I've said very little about my card compared to how I write up most of my posts but this one is just too sad.  Thanks for understanding.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.

It is very difficult to lose a child. I think your beautiful card will bring some measure of comfort, especially as they realize what love you put into its creation.
hugs,
