Thinking of You Sympathy

This is my second card using the same supplies/stamp. I'm tardy with a sympathy card for a friend who was an excellent support to my mom during her cancer journey as her husband was on a similar path. He passed away a few weeks ago and today would have been his earthly birthday. I know first hand how difficult the 'first' everything can be after a loved one journeys to heaven. I wanted to make a card for her to let her know she's still in many of our thoughts.

Hand Full of Stamps #26 ~ Look What I Got We needed to use something we'd purchased in the past week. I snagged these cool DCWV stitching rubons at Michaels on CLEARANCE.
365 Cards Day 60 ~ All that Glitters (use 3 different color glitters)

My Creation

Image Detail
This was my first time using Stickles as more of an outline/highlight than to fill in a larger spot. I need some practice, but I like it.

This set has some great sentiments that can be personalized with Mom, Dad, Sister, etc. The only tricky part is to get things lined up since they are seperate stamps. I tend to use the 'free-fall' method instead of using a positioner. You can tell, I can't stamp a straight verse for the life of me.
