May Time Heal Your Heart…

SC379 blk

It’s not something I like having to do, to make a sympathy card. And this one was especially hard. Not because of the techniques or images, but because it is being sent to a mother… I barely knew her. Her daughter was in my 4H club seven years ago, she was 14 at the time… I found out this week that she was brutally murdered late last month! A very sad, horrific ordeal. I can’t even begin to imagine what her mom is going through…

A depressing intro to my card…. I’m sorry.
I do LOVE how the card turned out though!

This is the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast this week.

I used ODBD Bird Border & Corners, inking up the stamps with Distress Vintage Photo (bird), and Bundled Sage. To add a little color to the flowers, I used a white gel pen and several fine tip Sharpie markers. I also sponged the edges with the same inks. 
The sentiment is from the newly released set, Paw Prints.

I also used the Technique Challenge for this week, Faux Pressed Flowers. You can see a video tutorial here.

My DP is Prima Sparkling Spring, Spellbinders is Romantic Rectangles {I love this set!}…cut in my Grand Calibur, a Sizzix embossing folder and pearls from Want2Scrap.

I’m not sure there is enough ‘time’ for Sue’s heart to heal, but I pray she can cherish the good memories and begin that long healing journey.

Thanks for stopping!

Dawn, I can not imagine what this mother/family is going thru. My sympathy to her and my prayers go out to this family.
The card you made is beautiful and I'm sure it will bring some comfort to her.

Hi Dawn...what a stunning card! Such a sad and tragic story, though. That poor mother. She will surely appreciate this gorgeous card and its beautiful sentiment! Hugs. Pat Frank
