With Heartfelt Sympathy

The mother of a dear friend of mine passed away and I thought I would make her a sympathy card. She passed away yesterday, the 2nd. Exactly a month to the date of when my mother-in-law passed away.

I wanted to keep the colors soft and subtle so I used the new Pink Pirouette along with the Pretty in Pink. Using these two colors together reminded me of using Pretty in Pink with Regal Rose. But with these two colors it creates an even softer look. I LOVE those two colors together and I can see myself using them in a lot of my girly cards!!! I have not yet opened the other 5 packages of new colors but I will be soon. It will be fun to see what colors I can mix with them too!!!

The decorative background paper was some I had picked up at Michael's or JoAnn's during one of their sales. I thought it went well with the two pinks. I love these little flowers in this set and may make a some more cards (until the decorative paper is used up) but I will make them into either birthday or thank you cards or even both!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
