Rest In Peace, Marion

Here is a sympathy card that I made yesterday following the passing of my brother-in-law's partner's mother who had been suffering with Alzheimers for a long while.

I normally buy my sympathy cards but saw this Cd over at Kraftyhands, and also saw some samples on Linda Simpson's blog and just felt that I had to have the Cd for those difficult cards that we all have to have/make at some time or other.

I used an 8x8 scalloped card blank. I matted a piece of the backing paper onto silver mirri and also one of the toppers onto the silver mirri. I took one of the sentiments into Paint and removed the printed sentiment . I then took this into Craft Artist and added my own sentiment - On the loss of your Mum -  and matted this onto silver mirri. In the bottom left hand corner I placed three cala lillies and added a purple bow.

In the inside, I took a plain insert from the Cd and placed this on the left hand side  and one of the inserts with a verse and placed this on the right hand side. There are two verses to choose from in each of the colourways as well as the one without a verse.
I added our names to the bottom of this.
I apologise for the poor lighting in the photographs but I was in a hurry to get this to Brian and Bridie and it was already dark when I took the photographs.
