...Life at Best is Very Brief...

Time to make a few more sympathy cards...always sad to think of the losses death brings.  Thankful for lives well-lived and for a God who makes no mistakes.

This card features burlap papers from DCWV.  Stamps are from Stampin Up, Stampendous and My Sentiments Exactly!  Inks are Frayed Burlap and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Copic markers and Memento Ink.  This card features paper embroidery as well.  The leaf is popped up with foam/glue dots for a varied dimensional effect.
Another card using the same sketch and a different color palette.  This card is distressed rather than embroidered.

Beautiful cards Michelle - I too like to have at least one sympathy on hand, as they are a hard card to make when under pressure. And yes, God makes no mistakes, and there is no limit to His understanding (Is 40:28).
Blessings
Maxine
