In the Arms of an Angel



I made these two cards following the same design and using the same beautiful image from Simply B Stamps, the Angel Betty drew in honour of the Newtown school shooting tragedy late last year.  The sentiment also came with the image and, as I needed sympathy cards it was ideal so I merged the two in Photoshop and printed them together.











I kept the colours muted and the embellishments low-key also, in keeping with the purpose of these cards.  I used the same paper roses on the inside but I only had two of the black buttons so instead I used a single flower cut from a lace chain.  I added another sentiment of sympathy on the inside to finish off the cards.


I’m entering these into the Perfect Sentiments current challenge.
