Praying For You

Happy Wednesday, we are half way through the week and closer to the weekend-Yeah!!!

Ok so this is a more serious card for today. I know that we are in the midst of the holiday season and joy is all around but unfortunately sometimes real life creeps in and I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend.

I have never really needed one before so I wasn't too sure what to do. I did know that I didn't want too much bling or bows so I think I kept it appropriate yet uplifting.

I started with a card base of Summer Sunrise and White by Paper Trey. My DP is Indian Summer by Basic Grey and that really was my inspiration piece which I based the card around. I sponged the center layer of white card stock with Chocolate Chip ink and then stamped the flowers from Pocket Silhouettes by Stamping Up in Bravo Burgundy. My ribbon is Stamping Up Chocolate Chip taffeta.

I was torn on the sentiment, I do not have too many that work for sympathy but in the set Circular Sayings by Vere there is both "Praying For You" and "Thinking Of You" and I just felt that the one I chose was more appropriate as my friend and her family have been in my thoughts since her fiance passed away a few weeks ago. I hope this card will brighten a day for her and let her know that her friends are here.


  1. This is gorgeous Dina! I'm sure your friend will cherish it!

  2. This is beautiful Dinsie! I am sure Christine is going to treasure this. The paper and minimal embellies are perfect!
