With Sympathy | Thinking of you

Sadly, I have been in need of two sympathy cards this past week .... both for some very dear school friends :(

My primary school friend Debbie lost her Mother-in-Law just before Mother's Day, and one of my High School friends, Jill, lost her Mum on Tuesday after Mother's Day.

With Sympathy

With Sympathy

Thinking of you

I had been having a tidy up and came across a 6" paper stack that came free with a magazine, and that started me on my colour theme - soft teals and oranges.

I had also just purchased some Just Rite stamps and had a lovely flower that matched the papers beautifully! The flower was stamped on the back of some embossed DP which give just a hint of texture.

Then I came across the most perfect sketch at a CAS #241 - but as I worked with the layout, I decided to make it square

I would like to submit these cards to the following challenges:
CAS #241 - sketch
CAS-Fridays #101 - stamp on DP
CASology #44 - Bloom
JustRite - colour theme: orange, teal and cream/beige
