A Big Heart and an Angel


Card done for this week's Color Challenge on SCS. The colors are Crumb Cake, Real Red and Early Espresso. This is my last GDT card - sniff, sniff. Unfortunately, I needed a special Sympathy card. One of the high level managers at work lost is young son in a horrible car accident last week. Wow - does that not hurt your heart? His son loved music and was very gifted musically so I added a little music note and an angel blowing her horn. Wow makes me tear up just typing this.

I had to do some altering to make my paper and embees match the colors from the challenge. I changed one of the bg panels, the little cog at the top of the heart and my brown banner a darker brown with water colors and ink. I changed my seam binding color by soaking it in crumb cake reinker, and I sponged real red ink on my red banner to hide some yellow and orange that was also on it. I hand cut my heart from a leftover box.

Hope your week is going well. Hugz to you!

  9. Even though your card is for a heartbreaking tragedy, it is so lovely. It was thoughtful of you to put on the special touches to celebrate this youngster's life. The colors are beautiful together, and thanks for telling the how-to's of changing the colors to fit the theme you needed. You did a marvelous work on this card, and I am sure the parents will be comforted & so grateful that you thought of their son as you made it just for him. God Bless & TFS - Hugs. (PS...I find the gelatos easier to work with than the Brusho-s. They still are intimidating me just a tad).
