Today I am sharing with you a condolence card I made for a dear friend who lost her mother this year. I wanted to make something that appealed to her favorite color while at the same time cheer her up despite the circumstances. I got to use tons of new goodies I've been dying to break out and tried some new techniques to have some fun with it.
I found a beautiful inscription I added to the inside of the card, but of course, I forgot to take a picture of the inside; however, if you are ever in need of something special to say, just Google the sentiment type you are looking for and you will quickly find yourself having to make some tough decisions on which ones to use!
The patterned damask paper in the background is from MME, the eggplant purple cardstock is from Colorbok and I used some purple Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels to lightly brush the cardstock and give it a little shine. All the pearls and bling came from my stash as well as the lace ribbon, the eggplant ribbon i used to thread through the lace is from Offray. The angel pin is handmade my yours truly and all the paper flowers were shabby chiqued and painted with glimmer mist and glitter. The border bunch is from EK Success and the sentiment diecut is Spellbinders.
