Two Sympathy Cards

Its been a bummer of a week around here. On the 19th, my boyfriend's good friend Andrew- his Mom, died from breast cancer. And today, my brother in law's sister passed away unexpectedly. Just very sad. So I have put together a couple of cards, same style just different colors. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the ovals and Storybook for the scalloped ovals. I also used Swiss dots on the smaller ovals and my new Sizzix embossing folder, Flower Vine. I ended up using my Creative Memories oval cutter for the mid oval. For the little flowers I punched out white paper, crumpled and spritzed them with Walnut Inking Solutions from Tsukineko in Cherry Blossom (pink) and Willow (green). I added a little clear bling to the middle of each of the flowers. The sentiment is printed (I used the center point feature to do this).
Well, let's hope the weekend gets better. TFL. :-\
