Angel Donita Colored - In honor of Sandy Hook Elementary school

Today I have a few sad card to share with you.  The 1st one I made in Honor of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.




I was devastated on my birthday when I heard about the tragedy.  I'm the mother of 4 kids and I could not imagine something so horrendous!  And when we heard about the courageous acts of the devoted wow.

I have created something with the great digi offered for this occasion from Digital Delight.
For this card I used paper from American Craft - Jolly.  I thought that even if it's such a sad occasion it was young kids and that bright colors would be the right ones for this card.  I used my standard circle and scallop circle from Spellbinder for this card.  I added some pearls and a flower from my stash and I used vintage photo distress ink on the sentiment that was a freebie from Simply Betty for this sad occasion.

Here's the look of the precolored digi.

And the sentiment that's so perfect for this

I followed this sketch:


I'm entering this card in the following challenge:

  1. Sunday sketch and stamp - Sketch
  2. Aud sentiments challenge - Use any sentiment
  3. Delightful sketches - Anything goes
I'll be mailing my card out today!  Just writing this post as brought tears to my eyes.  I can't imagine what the families are going through so close to Christmas....  My heart and prayers reach out to you.

Hugs
