Sorry, a Sympathy Card

Hubby asked me to make him a sympathy card for a co-worker's girlfriend whose mother passed away last week.  Of course!  Sandra is very nice and my heart breaks for her so making a card for her is the least I can do.

The leaves are from a soon-to-be discontinued set by A|Muse Studios called "Beautiful Botanicals 2".  The text is from a set by Hero Arts called "Say It All." And the background paper is from a pad by Red Rubber Designs call "Rustic Chic". ( If you are interested Red Rubber Designs has a great sale going on...  I'm a satisfied customer.)  I cut a little "frame" from some scrap paper to make the shadow using a sponge and an ink pad that coordinated the the paper.

I used my Tim Holtz centering ruler to poke the holes and added the 3 black gems to balance out the image piece.  I like how this turned out so now I just have to add something inside.  I'm sure Sandra will appreciate it.

I've been looking at how to add a Pinterest button to my photos but I'm a big chicken.  I do have a "Pin It" button on my tool bar so I can pin directly from others for future reference.  I'll keep trying to get this figured out but, who knows....
