Sympathy card number 2

This 2nd sympathy card was for a colleague of mine who lost his mother-in-law.  It's always so sad to see love ones go even if they are much older!!!

So for this card I used another wonderful digi from Create with TLC called Daisies vintage digitized.  And I used the last of my premade sentiments! :(  I really hope that I don't  have to make more of these cards for awhile...

I saw a wonderful sketch from CAS Sunday that I thought would be perfect for this card.  I never know how to make them and sympathy cards seem to be better when CAS.

I used my CM corner punch to cut out the corners of the black.  I used my pebbles - jewel tones chalk to color a bit the image.  It gives the impression of the old black and white pictures that people used to color lightly.

Here's a closer look at the digi and the sentiment:
To make this I followed this awesome sketch so glad to have found it because I was lacking inspiration!

I'm entering the following challenges:

  1. CAS on Sunday - Sketch
  2. Word art wednesday - anything goes
  3. Cas-ual fridays - Tic Tac Toe ( did punch, text, black and white)
So that's it for me for tonight!  I'm really glad that my 2 cards are done... do you have trouble doing those type of cards?  I used to purchase them... but figured this is probably the best way to show that I share their pain... just really have trouble doing them...

I'll be back tomorrow with some more cards but more cheerful this time!!!
