Pearly Thoughts of Sorrow

I was told today that a dear friend of our family has lost her mother,
and I wanted to send the family a sympathy card to let them know we are thinking of them.

These are usually the most difficult cards for me to make, because I always want it to be soft, peaceful and soothing to the recipients; and I am always afraid that I won't achieve that. This Thoughts and Prayers set from Stampin Up is always a "go to" stamp set for this type of card for me though, and paired with the pretty pearls I figure it softened the look just a little bit.

I hope the family enjoys it too and knows how much they mean to us all.

Card details:
Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers stamp set from Stampin Up
CS/DP: white, blush blossom, dark green Bazzill textured paper, Nook and Pantry BasicGrey
Inks: Close to cocoa, old olive, barely banana
Embellies: Double stitched chocolate organdy ribbon, half pearls and machine stitching

Have a great day!
