Thinking of you

This is a card for someone who has just suffered a bereavement - because I  work with people all over the country it is difficult to send joint cards. However, in this instance it involves people at our HO in London and I am going there on Monday. So I got the colleagues here to sign a blank piece of paper and brought it home with me yesterday and then made the card and popped it in for the rest to sign on Monday. My boss suggested she buy a card but that would have meant bringing it back on Monday and it not going til Tuesday - still with me? I hope everyone thinks that it is suitable.
I've used SU flower stamp and pink cardstock which is punched along the edge with a Fiskars punch. Used some sticky Laura Ashley ribbon and added a MS punch butterfly. I'm entering in into Colour create who want pastels and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge who want Pink, green and flowers.
Off to Victoria's class soon - don't know what we are doing but I am sure to have fun as a couple of other bloggers go to the class too. Share with you later.........

WOW Linby! You are really pushing the envelope. I never thought of pink for a sympathy card! It always seemed a bit of a jolly, happy colour to me.
