Perfect Pretty in Pink

It was with such a heavy heart that I put this card together. A co-worker's granddaughter passed away within days of her third birthday. Though when she was born, it was inevitable to happen, its never easy when it actually occurs. The little lady may not have walked, or really talked - but with her big brown eyes looking up at you, she brought more joy to life then one would imagine. God Bless the Bell family, she couldn't have been welcomed into a better family.

Without further adue here is my card:

I added the with deepest sympathy inside, since I just thought it was necessary to leave the outside clean. I added alittle glitter to the pink in the Awash flower, and a pink rhinestone. The satin ribbon is pretty in pink and sits on embossed dots vanilla CS.

Ingredients: Awash with flowers
CS: Vanilla, Pretty in pink
Ink: Pretty in pink, grey, garden green
Glitter, rhinestone, Big shot embossing folder (dots), satin ribbon

Chera - these are always the hardest cards for me to make. In fact, I normally end up at the card store because I just can't bring myself to do it. You did a great job - it is a beautiful card and appropriate for the age of the child. I will keep this family in my prayers.

Your card is beautiful and I'm sure the family will have comfort from it. Sympathy cards are always hard to do - but you did a great job in memory of this very special child.
