Only God knows... Sympathy card (WAW #117)

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Quick post tonight!  I wanted to do a simple one layer card and just bought this new (to me) stamp set of sentiments from Avery Elle.  I love the fonts! It also has the small flowers and petals as well as some other small shapes.
Unfortunately I've been needing sympathy cards (2014 is starting out rather rough for those left behind) and I thought this is somewhat cheery and I hope it brightens our young friend's day.

The inks I've used are Archival (venetian orange, chrome yellow) Memento (tuxedo black, pear tart), Colorbox (Playground).  Card stock is Neenah bright white.

The inside sentiment is new from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Future.  It is one of 10 sentiments. I've added more flowers on the inside.  This is for a young lady who goes to our church and it's
not only to express condolences but to encourage her as well.
I will be sharing this card at Word Art Wednesday #117 Anything Goes.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week!

By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches and honor and life. Proverbs 22:4



  1. Just perfect for a sympathy card. And, so quick and simple.

  2. Hi Natalie! Not sure why, but this is my favorite card of all time. I mean it! I love the font on the front and the inside. The sentiment is perfect.
    Are you submitting your designs to card companies? You should.
    Blessings to you my talented friend,

  3. This is just so perfect, those sweet little petals and leaves. I enjoyed seeing your lovely art today and thank you for sharing it with us.
