PCC225 Comfort and Healing

Hi peeps!  I don't normally do two posts in one day, but I wanted to get this card in for the Paper Craft Crew sketch before the deadline because I thought it was a nice one!

Visit the Paper Craft Crew and play along with Card Sketch 225. #pcc2017 #cardsketch

You might remember I made a sympathy card for my friend Sharon, who lost her aunt on Christmas day.  Ten days later, she lost her mother, her aunt's sister.  I just can't imagine the grief of losing two cherished family members within two weeks.  Anyway, Sharon loves the beach and her mother's favorite color was blue, so I combined those two elements to make her a sympathy card:

Although the DSP is really a sky photo, it reminded me enough of the beach to use it!  The card base is Pool Party, and I embossed the Island Indigo panel with the Seaside EF, then added some ribbon embellishments and a sentiment.  More details are in the project menu below. 

Hope you have a wonderful day.  And since I already shared a Cassidy photo today, I thought I'd show you our sunrise on this beautiful but COLD morning:
