I’ll start with saying that today’s card is one that no one should ever have to receive (or make). It is for a family at my children’s school who are suffering the loss of their 9 day old baby girl. Certainly no words can ever come close so I thought that making a beautiful card might be meaningful. Again, not sure this comes close but I hope it will at least let them know that we are thinking of them and praying for them.
I had no idea how to approach this card and had been wanting to use the colors from this Stampin’ Celebration Challenge all month. I am too late to link but I thank them for the inspiration. Make sure you go see the winner’s card. Heidi’s creation is beautiful. I chose the hydrangea from the retired Because I Care since it is one of my favorite stamps. I hope the tone of this isn’t too “sunny” but it seems more subdued in person than in the picture. I layered some retired Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon on top of the Victoria Crochet Lace and I think it gives a pretty effect. The sentiment is from my old go-to Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Thanks for stopping in today. I’ll be back tomorrow with the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
