...With Sympathy

This afternoon i was given the news that a friends grandmother had died this morning.
I know her as i work part time in a rest home as a personal assistant, and have had the pleasure of looking after her daily needs on a few occasions.

So as i didn't have a pre-made card and on hand (as i normally do) i had to make one, again i gave the sponging a go, and i'm not sure if i like the results. Mind you i did it in a rush, and sponging takes patience and time to get the flow right.

The inspiration came for this card from Sharlene Meyer, i CASED a creation she did some time ago on her blog. Click here to go over to her blog to have a look at the original card and the rest of her fantastic creations.

Here is my attempt.
The bow is made using my Double Rectangle punch (retiring next month). if i can work out how to put it up in photo steps, i will do so as this is a great way to create a bow

Card: Chocolate chip, Whisper White
Stamps:  Pocket silhouettes, montagra "with sympathy"Stamp
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, versamark, Basic Black
Other:  SU punch, Embossing powder, heat tool, Dimensionals, SU Choc Chip Ribbon, SU Matt Pack
