Thoughtful Words

Hello, and a big welcome to my blog today

I always find it hard to get the old crafting muse fired up after being away, do you?   I really needed to sit down yesterday and make a card, and as it was a Condolence card I had to make it was even harder - they are never easy. 

I decided to use the new May LO from The Sketch File Blog as a starting point, as the LO lent itself really well to using a lovely quotation on the narrow panel and butterflies for the details to symbolise the memories we never lose

Papers from an old DCWV 8x8 pad "Far East" 
Textured card in Vanilla-White for the card base and the printed panel
Butterflies cut using "Butterfly Trio" (Memory Box)
Tiny clear gems

The Sketch File May 2017
I hope you like the card and the LO and will feel inspired to join
 in and give it a go this month!

Thank you for calling by

Sympathy cards are tough for me. Love the sentiment on yours Kathy and the sketch worked really well. I have those papers - they're a favourite.
