God's Blessings to You

Sympathy cards - are always hard to make when you need them, I try to have some on hand especially for the shop where my cards sell, some months they are the fastest sellers - a sad reality.

For my card today I have used the fabulous Spellbinders Rose Creations Shapeabilities® and a retired sentiment from Layers of Color.  The Die has been cut using the
Spellbinders Grand Calibur®

Along with the Foliage Shapeabilities® The patterned paper  is from the KaiserCraft After Five Collection and the bling from Want2Scrap - I love the Swirls Finesse, a favourite.

This card is for the following challenges:
The Squirrel & the Fox - Anything Goes  
Allsorts - Flower Power 
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
 4 Crafty Chicks - Pearls, Pearls, Pearls 
CCEE Stampers - Sympathy cards
