Sympathy cards...

it was definitely a sad night tonight...I had to go to a long time friend's mother's funeral. It was a nice funeral at Makiki Christian Church. the best part of it all was that it was a "Christian" funeral where we all know that she's went home to be with the Lord and that one day we will see her again. so, anyhoo...I created two cards...one for my mom and one for me.
the blue card was created with the upsy daisy stamp set.
the pink card used the eastern bloom set.

here you can see the bling in the middle of the flowers...
upclose:
I used the stylized flower cuttlebug embossing folder...for the background and for the circle punch. I used the giga and mega punches to create it. used the dazzling diamonds on the flowers and stamped it with the saying: with deepest sympathy.

Here's the card from a distance. I hope you all had a good Monday...
I hope you have a better Tuesday!

It hurts deeply when a loved one is lost, but praise God for the peace the family has within, knowing that she is now rejoicing with our Lord. TFS!

Very pretty cards, Joy. I love what you did with the CB folders. How it was utilized in two different parts of your card. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

Have a blessed day in Jesus!
