Sympathy Card For My Sister-In-Law

I made this card for my sister-in-law, Diana, and her family.  Her grandmother passed away last week.  

The background was made with alcohol inks, and the stamps are from the Gina K. Spring Mix set.  I used Lovely Lilac ink, by Stampin' Up.  The mini flat-back pearls, which I found to be the perfect touch on this card, are from Martha Stewart. 

I highly recommend small pearls on a sympathy card, as they soften the card's bright colors.  I don't like dark colors on a sympathy card, but I didn't want it to look like a birthday card either.  The pearls did the trick.

Please keep Diana and her family in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you for that, and for stopping by today.
