May You Find Peace

MFTWSC181Loosing a loving parent is something many of us have faced & I just found out I need a sympathy card for a friend going through this difficult time. I try to make beautiful, but simple sympathy cards & thought the sketch for MFT would be perfect.  I was thinking of brown & beige, but then I remembered the MFT Color Challenge.  Print
I like the neutrals with the soft green & dark blue & it seems peaceful & comforting to me.  I used MFT stamp sets Peaceful Wildflowers & Contempo Cage along with MFT dies Dizzy Doily & Royal Leaves.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Nautical Blue & the subtle border on the card front is stamped in PTI Vintage Cream. The vellum strips & green cardstock were scraps, so I'll enter at Pixies Snippets Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  20. Losing a parent is the most difficult thing! It's so hard for me to create sympathy cards in general. I feel for the person so deeply that I am creating this card for. I dread that I am having to create this for them. Making a handmade card though means so much. It means you are truly thinking and feeling for them. Your card is really touching and beautiful!

  21. Yes, losing a parent is heart-breaking, and your card here - delicate, soft, gentle - will go miles in bringing some soothing comfort. It's simply beautiful, and so infused with compassion and empathy that it's sure to touch your friend's heart very deeply, as it has mine! Gorgeous in every detail! Hugs~c
