With Sympathy

This is a card I made for a dear friend whose sister recently passed away.  I wanted a "manly" sympathy card and this set "Keep My Lamp Burning" was perfect from Our Daily Bread Designs.

I live near the beach, so I especially love the lighthouses that ODB has to offer.  I did add an anchor which did not come with the set because I just felt like expressing that Jesus is also an anchor.  I used jute to create my rope design tied to the anchor.

My design paper is from Basic Grey "Granola" plus two narrow strips from Pink Paislee's "Queen Bee" collection.  I was taught to never, ever throw away usable scraps!   I embossed SU card stock and distressed all my layers.  All card stock used was from SU.

Thanks for visiting!
