Sympathy Card

A very good friend of mine lost her father yesterday. She is a music teacher and such a wonderful person. My heart goes out to her and the family. I created this card to send to her.

"Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." 1 Thessalonians 4:12-13 (NIV)

The card is done for using the sketch challenge on SCS found here: Sketch Challenge

I used the Stampin' Up set called Garden Collage for the main image and Thoughts and Prayers for the sentiment. The main image was stamped twice so as to be able to cut out the bird and attach it with dimensionals for added depth to the image. I colored the image with Stampin' Up markers - Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue, and Gable Green. The image was cut out with a Nestabilities set of scallop squares and the Groovy Guava background was done with the same.

My heart goes out to the family. God bless you!
