Heavenly Kingdom

Okay, Like I said I am still trying to figure out how to take a decent picture of my cards!
This is a sympathy card I sent to friends of ours from college. Sadly, their 1 week old son went to be with the Heavenly Father and this is what I came up with. I didn't want a depressing card, because the situation is sad enough for me. I wanted a card that conveyed my certainty that he was in heaven and happy, even though we are all sad. I hope this card pulled it off.
Materials Used: SU Dreams & Dragons stamp; SU Stampin Pastels; Cuttlebug Spots & Dots embossing folder; SU Ink-Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip; SU Cardstock-Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip; SU dimensionals

I think this is very appropriate, Sara. I know you struggled with what to put on the card. What did you have inside? A stamp or a handwritten note? I'm sure whatever it was, it was a comfort to them.

BTW - no worries about the blog! Lots of people picked this layout! :)
