Sympathy and Love


Hey Guys!
I wanted to combine a card for two challenges, one called for the theme to be love and the other sympathy. As I did at first, you may think that these would be two very different looks, but then I thought about it and what better love story than the one that God has for us and the welcome with open arms he gives at our death.
I used two images from Doodle Pantry for their challenge #6 expressing love. Ginkgo leaves and a verse from her set A Loving God were combined to create my front and inside sentiment. I am also entering this in the challenge for a sympathy card at Mark's Finest Papers for the Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #39.


I love the simplicity of this card design and really love the inside sentiment, it always gives me a peaceful feeling. Ps.116:15 which is "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints". Thanks for stopping by.
