Bird Sympathy Card

Good morning! Well, today saw everyone back to school and work, and I am here with the cats and dog enjoying the peace and quiet! I love when everyone is here, the time we get to spend together is precious,especially since the kids are growing up. I tend to have more creative mojo when they are here, I guess their energy feeds me. One of my husband's co worker's Mother died recently, and this is the card I am sending.
This is a brand new stamp by Stampabilities. Birds are my favorite animals and thought it may be a comforting image.


Here are my supplies:
Card Stock-The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper- Making Memories and Kaisercraft
Ribbon and Lace from my stash
Bird Stamp- Stampabilities
Sentiment Stamp-Crafty Secrets
Pearls- Hobby Lobby
Flowers-Hobby Lobby

I am linking this card to the following challenges:
Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 98
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for visiting!
