ODBDSLC 191 Secret Admirer

A lady at church just lost her Grandmother that was in her 90's and she sounds like she was quite the woman as is this lady at our church, so when I saw this sentiment I thought it would fit perfectly at this time, hope it is appropriate for a sympathy card.

Here is the card I made:


Here is the card I Cased from Grace:



I loved the shape card idea with the Quatrefoil die in the background, if you would like to know what Grace used in her card you can find it on her BLOG HERE .

Here is what I used on mine:

Our Daily Bread designs -- Morning Glory stamp set, colored w/markers and Quatrefoil pattern die
Spellbinders -- Curved Rectangles die
Country diary of an Edwardian lady paper from Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine
Ribbon and Flower shaped button

This was my first time using this stamp and I want to thank Grace for the great inspiration to use it!

The challenge ends tomorrow the 23rd at 8pm est.  You can find out all the details HERE on the Our Daily Bread Designs blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Connie

That is simply beautiful, Connie! I think the sentiment along with the pretty blues and the lovely flowers makes a perfect sympathy card.
