With Sympathy

I seem to have had a lot of sympathy cards to make lately.  And though it is not a fun occasion to craft for, I do enjoy the challenge of making something beautiful yet sedate.

Challenges:
CraftDee Bow-Z--anything goes with a handmade bow
Cute Card Challenge #384--citrus (I went with the orange, lemon, grapefruit and a bit of lime colors)
Southern Girls--anything goes
Penny's Paper Challenge #238--use ribbon or twine
Addicted To Stamps #155--inspiration photo (I went with the colors and the flower theme)
Word Art Wednesday #194--anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday--I used the middle row: pearls/gems, sentiment and flowers
Fan-tastic Tuesday #96--make it feminine

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI "Mum's The Word" and "Boutique Borders: Sympathy"; JustRite Stampers "Crackle" background
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A"; MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle

Anyone would treasure this beautiful sympathy card Heather. They are hard to make but probably one of the most appreciated types we crafters can give. Thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous creation with us at Sketch Saturday this week!

Such a wonderful, classic style card. Leaving you with an awesome inspiration from the Scripture in Hebrews 3:6 and it says, "But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Have an awesome week.
