Flowering Flourishes Sympathy

Flowering Flourishes Lee'13 (4)Hello my friends!

We had a very sad time at church recently with one of the ladies (mum of 4 kids) finally (after 3 1/2 years) succumbing to her terminal cancer. But … what a wonderful blessing it was to attend her memorial service and hear how she kept her eyes focussed on God … and trusted Him completely. I made a beautiful brayered card for her husband & kids … but am REALLY annoyed that I forgot to photograph it before I sent it! Instead … I am sharing today a card I made for another church family who were very close to the lady that died.

Flowering Flourishes Lee'13 (1)I have to acknowledge that this card was inspired by Holly Van Dyne. Truly … this was a beautiful design. Flowering Flourishes Lee'13 (3)I hope you check out Holly’s original! I finally used my Pool Party embossing powder. (Aren’t I thrilled that Pool Party is becoming a family colour with the SU! colour refresh that is coming!) I also used some shimmer spray made from my platinum shimmer paint. It added a pretty but subtle sparkle to the background. Well … must fly … things to do! Have a great day!

    Indeed, Bronwyn was an inspiration to all who knew her. I am amazed at her strength and courage in the face of trouble.

    Sorry for the occasion… it’s too bad you needed a sympathy card… but seems like she is in a better place now.
    Beautiful card. Pool Party looks awesome on black… especially heat embossed! Love the swirly image and the little rhinestones.
