One never likes to have to make these cards and this was is for a dear friend who lost her mother. This card qualifies for the Nuetrals challenge ( CAS262) as well. It is VERY CAS for me :-)
This paper was so pretty and it spoke to me and I did little to distract from it. The roses appear applied but they are raised and glossy and part of the paper right from the stack. I applied some dots of glossy accents to the center of the rose and also to the spent bud. I cut the Cheery Lynn Design die in Soft Suede and also used Soft Suede for the card itself. I added 3 of the metal accents and dotted the i in with by punching two of the smallest hand punches for circles and then added a bit of Glossy Accents to that as well.(The die does not come with the dot for the i)
Thank you for taking a look!

Absolutely beautiful. This dp is so lovely and so perfect for a sympathy card. One never wants to have to make these, but I'm sure your friend will feel all the love you put into making it for her.
