Mojo Sympathy Card


It's with a lot of sadness that I'm making this card for a co-worker who unexpectedly lost her young adult son on Christmas day. I went with earthy colors and loved working with Julee's awesome sketch for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge! I stamped the ferns using Soft Suede ink then ran the kraft panel through the Big Shot using the square lattice EF by SU. The rest is pretty simple.
Here's what else I used:
STAMPS: Forever in Our Hearts by Verve
PAPER: Simply Chartreuse (PTI), Kraft, Soft Suede, Vintage Cream
INK: Soft Suede
ACCESSORIES: Maya Road corrugated circle and small kraft flower, Copper brads, Metal flower brad by SU, Fern and frond punches by Martha Stewart, Square lattice EF, Wide twill tape by SU, Twine, Corduroy button by SU.

Off to work I go after almost 3 weeks vacation...I'm trying not to be too sad because I do need to support my stamping habit - lol!

Great take on the sketch, Wanda. Love the colours, leaves in the BG and ribbon treatment. My heart goes out to your co-worker - they say the loss of a child is crushing. Glad you can provide some support.
