Cards for a sad occasion...

Sadly, a colleague recently lost her Dad.
At work, I was asked for some cards to send their sympathies to her....

 This card was made with a dovecrafts embossing folder 
and the flowers are from dovecrafts too.
I made the sentiment in publisher on the pc. 
The flourish is a marianne die.

I would like to enter this into to following challenges...
JOs scrap shack - anything goes - 14 March
Left of center - die cuts - 14 March
Scrapping 4 fun - flowers - 21 March
Little Miss muffet - anything goes - 12 March
Crafting from the heart - anything goes -/ use dies - 10 March
Kaboodle doodles - embossing - 9 March

This image is from a load of background papers that I have had for yonks...and never used! 
I printed a bible verse onto it
and added a martha stewart punched butterfly (slightly pearlised).

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...
Left of centre - anything goes - 31 March
Cutting and stamping - butterflies are buzzin - 11 March 
Faith, hope and love - use scripture - 10 March
Dragonfly dreams - up in the air - 3 April

I found this sympathy verse on the internet...
and was touched by its words. 
The poppies are my friends favourite flower.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges...

Thats crafty - anything goes - 21 March
Through the craft room door - anything goes - 11 March
Make it monday - anything goes - 9 March
My creative moments - anything - 9 April

Thank you for joining our Anything Goes Challenge over on the Left Of Centre Creative Challenges.
This challenge is to celebrate our 1st Birthday as a challenge blog. Our thing is 'dark/alternative', however we won't turn anyone, who has followed the theme' away...

You have made two really appropriate cards for such a sad occasion. The diecut and embossed one if clean and simple and the verse one is my idea of what the approach to heaven is like!

I really hope you will join us for more of our future fortnightly Challenges and experiment with your dark side....we all have one :-)
There are always great prizes to be won from our wonderful Sponsors.

<3 & Hugs
