Sympathy Card

Our new neighbor's little 5 year old son passed away last Thursday and we did not find out about it until he was buried on Monday. He was born with lots of problems and has struggled most of his life. But, my heart breaks for them and I wanted to send them a word of comfort.

I kept this card very simple letting the DP be my background and focal point. I punch the corners with my Martha Stewart Loop punches (in stock now) and attached the DP to a 6x6 card using Neenah White Cardstock.

Then sentiment is from JustRite's Thinking of You set. I cut it out using the Classic Oval Small Nesties S4112, sponged the edges for a more dramatic appearance and added a heart crystal. On the inside I stamped a verse from Verve and wrote a personal note.
