Sympathy Card

One of my supervisors at work asked me to make a sympathy card for a family member who lives out of state...she is going through postpartum depression and a friend of hers just committed suicide.  So she is going through a difficult time right now.  I love this set from Create With TLC, it was a bonus set (actually two different sets) gift with purchase...  I added lace, a button, burlap and a rose & leaf die.  The sentiment is mine...
***tip***I had a bit of a difficult time layering with the burlap.  I did figure out however, that if you glue the first down and run something flat over and over it until it is mostly dry, you can then add the next layer.


Thanks for looking!
