sympathy card

I made this card for a blogger friend who lost her dad very suddenly recently. I didn't want to make an obvious sympathy card so I hope she likes it. I sent it 1st class 2 days ago so she should have it by now. I also made this pin as a little present to hopefully lift her spirits a bit at this sad time.

The card is made from stash using white opaque vellum paper with silver highlights so the image didn't come out that well. I've also used black and silver card with black and white flowers, gems, glitter and brads. The pin is just a hat pin with clear, silver and pearly beads with silver sequins.
Just to let you know I'm thinking of you Emma....hugs to you and your family, Clare x

  4. Hello Clare,
    This looks lovely. What a nice card to send to someone. I am especially impressed with the wedding album you have been working on. All of the adornment on the pages looks so professional and clean. Also just wanted to say Extremely Crafty is back and thank you for all of your warm wishes. I really appreciated them.
