For my beloved friend Steven

On 16th November 2011 a dear friend of mine Steven died at 32 years old. I have been in absolute shock since learning the news of his passing. I met Steven in 2005 when I went travelling overseas for World Youth Day and despite him living interstate we have remained close friends since. Yesterday I was able to travel to QLD for the day to attend his funeral and say goodbye. Heres a photo of me and my friend Steven in 2005 when we met in Germany.
To send my condolenses to his family I made them a card. I always struggle with sympathy cards. Never know what to put on them. Or how to find the right words. I used the latest inkspirations sketch to make a sympathy card. Here is the sketch.


I actually changed the sketch up quiet a bit to suit myself. I am happy with how it turned out though. Very vintagey. My photo wasn't very good as I took it whilst travelling and after the card got a little squashed in my bag. It looked even more impressive IRL
Stamp Set: Thoughts and Prayers, French Foliage
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Stampin Write Markers, 2 1/2" circle Punch, Pearls, Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Victoria Lace Ribbon, Dimesionals, Sponges, Daubers
Thanks for looking. Have a lovely Day
Dani
