SFYTT Sympathy Bella

Sadly today I found that I had to make a Sympathy card as an extended member of my family passed away. Estelle was a true lady in every sense of the word and will be missed very much.

Once again I reached for my new 'Thoughts and Prayers' set along with the Bella Bleu paper from Stampin Up! However this time I've decided to go with the Neutral colours rather than the blues. I've also used this week's SFYTT for the layout.

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some Kraft (pierced) that I got from my BFF Edna and then a layer of Bella Bleu paper. The larger rectangle is the co-ordinating paper matted with Vanilla (pierced). The main image has been stamped in Creamy Caramel and Mellow Moss on Vanilla (pierced again) and matted with Kraft. The sentiment is from the same set, cut with oval nestabilities and popped on foam tape. Finished off by tying some ivory satin ribbon around it, adding some tiny Latte pearls to each of the flowers and a couple of larger ones to the corners.

Thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support for Herb, the good news is that he is recovering well all things considered!! He will still be in hospital for some time, but he is doing well. Thank you so much for all your prayers, thoughts and good wishes!

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
