I needed a sympathy card more than a dessert card. I hope to be back with dessert! There's always room for Jell-o!
Very simple, cut some cardstock with square dies and used them as stencils. I tried to blend dark to light.
This card will go to the family of our family friend Dee. We had a teaparty for her 99th birthday last March and her daughter Carol who was treating for pancreatic cancer. Carol is cancer free but Dee didn't make it to 100, which was her goal. She was a nurse, mom of 5 and a self taught artist, who painted her front window every Christmas so everyone could enjoy it as they walked past. She will be very much missed.
I also wanted more of an uplifting card. I don't believe in speaking of loss because we've all gained so much from those we love and care for.

Oh, Jean! I am so sorry about the loss of your friend, Dee, but thrilled to read that Carol is cancer free. And this card is wonderful! I love the sentiment; it's perfect for a sympathy card. Love the square mask idea, too! Into my faves!
