Sympathy Card - Freshly Made Sketches

Carpe Diem!
It's important to make every day count, you know?
Tonight I'll be headed out to support a very dear friend whose
husband has passed.
I made her a card last night, and I'll be giving her 
a packet of thank-yous for her to use.

I followed the fabulous sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge:
Loved this layout - it was instant inspiration.
'Cause you know that sometimes it's hard to know
what to give/say to someone when they're going through
a great loss.
Hope you make today 
the best you can

    I LOVE what you created. Just enough... and perfect in it's elegant simplicity!

  2. I love the subtle swirls on this! It's such a pretty card. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
