Sympathy Card

Hello Friends!!
Happy Thursday!!
Heather here and today I am sharing a Sympathy card that I was asked to make.  I have such a hard time with sympathy cards...what is the right thing to say..what kind of image to use etc.  So I thought I would just stick to my normal style (not to many poofy it would fit in an envelope).  I decided to stick to a simple sentiment as well.
The rose image is from the Graphic's Fairy, the patterned papers are digital papers from Gecko Galz.  
I used these fabby ribbons and trims from
Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Danielle White Crochet lace, Moss green leaves, aqua baker's twine, Pink Salmon seam bindingmarshmallow candies, candies fix it foam padsNatural Crochet lace and scor tape.
Above is a close up of my sweet little seam binding bow, want to make one??.... you can see my BFF Ginny's tutorial here.  I also have the rose image elevated with the candi fix it foam pads, so that I could put the Danielle lace underneath it.
I inked all my edges with Ranger's Vintage photo.  I inked the marshmallow candies as well, and elevated them with the candi fix it foam pads!
Above you can see the Danielle crochet lace, the aqua baker's twine and my fav moss green leaves!  I also tucked in some 
Natural Crochet lace at the top and bottom of my rose image.
On the inside I added the sentiment..."Our thoughts and prayers are with you."  Of course I forgot a photo of the inside...LOL.
One last look at the whole card.
Here is a peek of another project that I did using my favorite Moss green leavesDanielle White Crochet lace, aqua baker's twine, Pink Salmon seam bindingcandies fix it foam pads, light blue crochet lace, orange swirls ribbon and orange buttons from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I am sporting my new Orange sunglasses :0)  Lately I have been having a flashback to the 70's when Orange was my favorite color (all started when my best online buddie Carol's dd wore a fabby orange dress to Prom.
