This week, one of my dear friends had to say goodbye to her long time feline companion. It's such a hard thing. I wanted to send along a little card letting her know that I'm thinking of her. The little kitty silhouette from C is for Cat works well for this situation & I decided to pair her with the colors and patterns that make me think of my friend. A full frame from the Framed Tulips seemed to add way too much Early Espresso & turned the card entirely too dark. So, I opted for a partial frame combined with some of the lovely flowers from the Springtime Vintage designer paper. My Marina Mist Scallop Circle was a bit too plain. To solve that problem, I just ran it through the Big Shot with my Elegant Lines Folder. I wasn't sure if enough of the embossed image would show to make a difference, but it really did. All in all it's simple, tasteful, and with hope-- all things any sympathy card should be regardless of the occasion.
