Sending You Peace

I'm dedicating this card to a new-found blogging friend who sadly lost a close member of her family this past week. If I had her address I could send the card for real. Anyhow, you know who you are and this one is for you; I hope that you find peace, calm and serenity in the hectic whirl that must be going on around you at the moment.

I was almost finished making this card for the Less Is More challenge when I saw her sad news.

How poignient that I had actually been thinking how the word 'Peace' could be used for a sympathy card as well as a Christmas card and that these colours suited sympathy.

Anyway, as we 'met' through the Less is More challenge, I'm sure that she wouldn't mind if this card was still entered into it. The colour theme this week is 'Pastels'.

I'm not sure if this is actually classed as a CAS card (probably not enough white space and I may need to be disqualified for that) - but compared to my normal style, it sure is CAS for me.


Thanks so much for looking,
Sharon xx

Sharon, this is a beautiful card and I am so sorry to hear of your friend's loss.
The effect of the colours is lovely and despite having a large proportion of the card covered, the whole effect is still clean and fresh.
Thanks so much for joining us again. We really appreciate your support!

What FAB colours Sharon.
I'm wondering what you would have done if you hadn't been to Make it LOL What fantastic products you bought! You really know how to bring them to life...just stunning!
I guess if being really critical, there could have been a bit more white space, but I think it works fine! Those colours are so pretty
So NO disqualification hehe
