A Sympathy Card

One of the ladies from our church is going thru a rough patch lately.  Her aunt passed away last week and she's going to lose her job at the end of the month because the company she works for is downsizing.  So, I made this card for her and put a verse inside by Helen Steiner Rice, but I forgot to take a pic of the inside.

It fits the following challenges:

Treehouse Thursday Challenge # 067 - Sponged Backgrounds
Etsy Inspired By: This headpiece (Those gorgeous muted earthtones)
Secret Crafter: anything goes
Priscillastyles: sketch 
A Spoonful of Sugar:  anything goes

Aud Sentiments:  Cheer Up 
ABC Challenge:  D is for Distressing  
Stamp Something:  digi day
OLLCB:  Sentiment
Tuesday Taggers:  It takes all sorts  and they're sponsored this week by:
