I know this appears to be in bad taste for a sympathy card with all the busyness and bling; but, one of my good friend's daughter died of cancer last week. Her daughter was all about fashion, so I thought this reflected her beauty and spirit. She left behind 3 children.
I used a sentiment from Thoughts and Prayers. I used a piece of jewelry inside the center framing which I so love to do after seeing Kitty use them so much. Kind of hooked on them.
Then, I knew when the time was right, the beautiful pearl/flower swirls given to me by AudreyAnn quite some time ago would work perfectly with this card. I always wait until things call me and this one did. I probably overdid it a bit, but who could stop?
I double looped the SU blushing bride ribbon that matches the blushing bride dp, lightly sponged the sentiment, paper pierced and used lots of dimensionals.
Thanks so much for taking the time for looking and hold those you love close.

This is a stunning and beautiful card....and that fact that you have put your heart into it for the loss of someone close adds even more beauty to it. I just love pink and pearls - Prayers for you and this young lady's family.
