Sentimental Sundays....Sympathy/Thinking of you

Hi Susan here....

The challenge over at Sentimental Sunday's is

'Sympathy/Thinking of you'

At sometime we all have to make one of these type of cards, and as sad as it is to make a sympathy card, to give a card made with love to someone special at a time when they are vunerable shows how much you care....
For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous creations from the design team call across to Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog.

Now for my card....

My backing paper is from The Paper Mill Direct and from my stash. Beautiful card and papers from The Paper Mill Direct such good quality and very reasonably priced.
My ribbon and lace is as usual from our local market.

I love using the frames and word sentiments designed by Ann Vento and this one is so gorgeous! You can find it at Raindrop Echo Designs. The frame I slightly coloured with promarkers.
My flowers are from Hobby Craft, the leaves I have made using a punch.

This is the inside of my card and it contains another one of Ann Vento's beautiful sentiments.
