With Deepest Sympathy

Just a quick post from me today. 

 I will be a bit MIA till the end of the week as I am working on various future projects.

I recently had to make a Sympathy card for a dear family member.  
Always a difficult subject.  

You want to show you care but not upset the family.


My card features a wonderful stamp which I have had in my collection for a couple of years but have not used as a Sympathy message before.  

It's an Inkylicious clear stamp and I have stamped with Versamark and embossed in gold Melt Dust.

I used a Spellbinder die to cut the image and some lovely Frantage detail to the edges.

Card mount is Centura Pearl and I have used an insert which had further private sentiments and messages.

The lovely organza flower ribbon and white flowers are from my stash.

I just love the words on this stamp and it brings me some comfort, as I hope it does to the family who received it.

Sending hugs to all
