A sympathy card

We just lost a neighbour that we'd known for almost 30 years.
She had lived a long life and thankfully passed away quickly without pain.

Here's her card...

In this view, you can see the sheen on the Centura card.
I cased THIS card that I found on Pinterest.

Centura pearl 'gold' CS from my favourite craft shop at Astbury Meadows Garden Centre in Congleton.
Clearly Besotted 'Leafy Accents' stamp and die
Ribbon,  pearls and flower from my stash

Let's hope I don't have to make another one of these any time soon!

Oh sorry for your loss. Neighbours can be very special indeed. Love the card. The embossing on the bottom is fabulous and lovely flower and leave combo. Sure to bring comfort to the family.

Beautiful Viv, sorry for you loss. I lost my Mom on the 30th of April to, both parents gone in 3 years and 2 months apart. Very difficult to deal with for me.
