With Sympathy

I drug my feet as long as I could to avoid making this card. I have read several blogs lately that have posted sympathy cards and thought it would be a good idea to have some on hand (as these blogs mentioned) but I never got around to it. Not too long ago an old acquaintance let me know that a mutual friend recently lost her husband (in his sleep). Mind you she is a couple years younger than I am (I'm 40.) Such a tragedy and loss! Our husbands served together in Iraq a couple of years ago. Here is the card I made for Amy:

Stamp set: All Year Cheer I. Cardstock: Shimmery White, Basic Black. Ink: CRAFT White. Accessories: Giga Scallop Circle punch, Double Hole punch, Cuttlebug, White Grosgrain & Narrow Organdy Ribbon, White Gel Pen. Note: the black card is actually attached to a Shimmery White layer.
