Wow, it has been awhile since I blogged. I have been making cards but haven't been able to post any. My computer was malfunctioning. It ended up in the shop for a week. They had to revert it to factory and rebuild from there. So then I had to spend another week reloading all my programs and finding the ones they had backed up. One error I made, I forgot to tell them to back up iTunes so when my husband went to sync his iPod, all the tunes erased. OOPS!! Now I have to spend some time reloading his tunes. 
Well anyway here is my card for Pals Paper Arts who provided this sketch:
PPA139and The Playdate Cafe for this color challenge:

Here is my card:

I think it is such a challenge to balance the solemnity of a sympathy card while making it something pretty to bring a little comfort.
Supplies:  Papers and butterfly (stamp & punch) from SU, Label die from Spellbinders, Sentiment from Hero Arts, It is hard to tell here but there are pearl accents on butterfly and daisy center.


  1. Computers! You can live without them anymore. Pretty card. Love the butterfly and flower accents, just the right bright touch! Thanks for joining us at the Pals this week!

  2. Glad your computer is back up and running. Very pretty sympathy card! Thanks for joining us this week at The Play Date Cafe.

  3. Great take on the color scheme - I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup this week!

  4. These colors are so peaceful and speak volumes to your beautiful, sympathy card, Donna! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

  5. Sympathy cards are so challenging but I think you got the balance just right. Lovely card. Thank you so much for joining in the fun with us this week over at The Play Date Cafe!
