Love and Sympathy

This past week our family said goodbye to one of the kindest people you could ever know:  Aunt Carol.  She was my mother's youngest aunt by marriage and absolutely my favorite aunt on that side of the family.  She was super sweet and had the cutest laugh.  I'm grateful that she lived close enough for us to visit often, and that I just went to see her a few weeks ago.

Aunt Carol loved pink roses, so I dug through my stash looking for the perfect embellishment and found this mulberry paper flower.  It is backed with some extra foliage sprigs, cut with a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-embossed in silver.  I need to remember to do this more often!  It really elevates the level of any card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!  

Supplies: 
Green and buttermint cardstock by Bazzill; poppy embossing folder by Anna Griffin for Cuttlebug; sentiment from Stampin' Up; Versamark ink; silver embossing powder; foliage die and scalloped oval Nestabilities by Spellbinders; mulberry flower by Recollections (Michaels); corner rounder punch.
