Thoughtful Words

Hello, and a big welcome to my blog today

I always find it hard to get the old crafting muse fired up after being away, do you?   I really needed to sit down yesterday and make a card, and as it was a Condolence card I had to make it was even harder - they are never easy. 

I decided to use the new May LO from The Sketch File Blog as a starting point, as the LO lent itself really well to using a lovely quotation on the narrow panel and butterflies for the details to symbolise the memories we never lose


Info:
Papers from an old DCWV 8x8 pad "Far East" 
Textured card in Vanilla-White for the card base and the printed panel
Butterflies cut using "Butterfly Trio" (Memory Box)
Tiny clear gems



The Sketch File May 2017
I hope you like the card and the LO and will feel inspired to join
 in and give it a go this month!

Thank you for calling by

Sympathy cards are tough for me. Love the sentiment on yours Kathy and the sketch worked really well. I have those papers - they're a favourite.
