So Sorry


It is never easy to make sympathy cards but I think they mean so much to the person receiving them.  
Here is a card I made using my Copic markers to create the bkg.  It is easy and very effective when using a silhouette stamp.  I added the sentiment and mounted it onto white cardstock to keep the look clean but simple.
I am adding this card to the Simon Says (anything goes) Challenge and the CASology (black) challenge this week.
Thanks so very much for all your most kind comments and emails.  It means the world to me!!
