This week our cards are headed to a family in New Jersey to show our support for the recent loss of their daughter and sister.
I cannot take any credit for this card as I came across this beautiful piece of designer paper and for me it made a sympathy card all on it's own. I thought of adding stitching, or some type of embellishment, or highlighting the flowers with colored pencils but the more I looked at the paper the more I felt I should just leave it alone. I mounted it on Sahara Sand and added the sentiment. The paper has such soft tone that I had to brighten it up a little in my photo. It's so delicate IRL. TFL.

This is beautiful! I was feeling really insecure when I saw those lovely flowers. I wanted to know how in the world did you stamp those! Whew was I relieved to know it is dp!!! Giggle. This is really lovely and I wouldn't have done anything to it either.

Robin this is amazing - so soft and lovely, just like the teapot!! I think that your decision to allow this paper to shine was wise, it is perfect with the simple sentiment. Thank you so much for being an angel and coming to John and Lisa's Teaparty...make sure to get your cookies! Hugz from NJ.
