Sympathy Card

Wow, posting a photo wasn't that difficult.  Could it be that I will be able to figure out this blog thing??

I am normally an " in the background kind of person".  I have been inspired by so many wonderful folks via blogs, you tube and face book that I finally got the courage to let people know I have started a blog.

Yikes, what was I thinking!  I have to admit while it is scary  (because what if no one likes my work) it feels good to put myself out there.

Sometime ago my boss had a death in her family and I made her this card.  I like the tone on tone look as well as the pearls.  She has a thing about pearls and wears them often.  Not sure if she realized I designed the card based on her likes, but it made me feel good to know that it was special just for her.

 The paper is retired Stampin Up paper and the stamp is also from SU.  The flowers are from my stash and This is the first stick pin I ever put on a card, the pearls are from Michael s.
Inside of the card 
Been trying to focus on designing the inside of my cards more.  In the past I only focused on the outside.  Hope you like this.  

Unfortunately it seems I always need to have a sympathy card on hand.  This card would look good in a variety of colors.
