Gorgeous and very elegant card, Mona! Love the nested die cut frames and the beautiful background paper! That sentiment is so dear and perfect to help your friend during this difficult time! God bless.

Altagacia said...

AMAZING this is spot-on. The sentiment, the out-reaching hearth-felt response of care, wanting and offering empathy. There are very few cards that are are able to do this, with out coming across all sugar like, and or that are NOT feeling it. You hit it esp w/the colors, thats so important(as YOU would well know. we pause, we know it's a phases of the life-CYCLE, and we feel the loss,with HOPE in the future that we gain new-life on another plane
This is a Great card, very inspiring!

Lou said...

Wow, this is a well thought out card. The message, the shapes, it's a whole moving sort of card. It hits on the feelings of the now and the present AND moving forward. I hope to be able to make such cards. By the way what size is this card,..and size of most cards??

Helen said...
