with Sympathy - Viva la Verve

Unfortunately my best friend's Mother has lung cancer and is on hospice care at this time.  I made this card in anticipation since I don't want to be caught without a proper card.  Her Mom played organ for church so I thought the music paper was perfect.  I know it sounds horrible to make the card ahead of time, but I want to have it done and then spend time with my friend when she will need me when she is grieving.

Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye; Core-dinations
Cardstock:  Core-dinations; Recollections
Stamp:  Verve - Treasured Words
Ink:  Distress - Vintage Photo
Spellbinder:  Small and large Circle; Pennant
Flowers:  Prima

So difficult to make a card like this, especially when it's your BF's mom. I hope they are keeping her comfortable in these last days. You did a beautiful job and I like how you incorporated the sheet music as a personal touch. Very difficult and sad time for your friend and I hope she will find comfort in your card.
