Charisma Cardz - Sympathy

Good morning, hope it's nicer out where you are than it is here, wet and windy is just what we don't want for the school run!!
We have a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and we are looking for 'sympathy' cards this week.
This was certainly a challenge for me and I left it until the last minute as I wasn't sure what to do.  In the end I found a sympathy verse, which I copied, changed the font to something fancy, printed it out, cut around it with my x-cut border punch and made that my focal point.  The paper is from the Papermania capsule collection 'mono', the whole pad is scrummy and I'm so reluctant to cut into it as there is only 1 sheet of each!!!  I finished off my card with some small white flowers and some kandy kisses, and after all of my worrying I really do like the finished card!
We have 2 lovely sponsors this week :
Soft Pencil have donated a $15 gift voucher to spend on their site.
Pizzazz Aplenty have donated a fantastic 'bling' package (I so want this!!) to see the contents please nip over to the blog.

I would like to enter todays card into the 'anything goes' challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and also into the 4 Crafty Chicks challenge which is themed 'with sympathy'.

My eldest daughter has been chosen as 1 of 10 children to represent the school at the towns rememberence service today.  I'm so proud of my girls, I guess like some of the other parents I can't understand how my children get chosen out of so many, my youngest was 1 of 4 to represent the school a couple of months back, but it's a lovely feeling to know that they must be doing well.

Stunning sympathy card Joanne! I love the colors the scalloped edges and the sentiment on the front is wonderful. I find these cards so hard to make but you make it look so easy. Thanks for sharing your creation with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.
