DT Day at Meljen's

Good morning everyone. I am back to normal... my desk is a WRECK! LOL But it is so nice to be back to creating! I really, really need to clean it off though before I move on to the next card.

Today is my DT Day at Meljen's, so I'll share my card with you. The theme is Fancy Folds and I panicked a little this morning because I couldn't remember what the theme was and thought.. Oh no! What if I did it wrong LOL But I'm all good.. I did a center step card for a colleague at work who just lost her father. And here it is:

I used Meljen's image - Window Cat. I thought it was the perfect image for a Sympathy card. I painted the window with acrylic paints and I colored the cat with my Prismacolor Pencils. I used the one die cut swirl and the die cut with the sentiment on the front. I paper folded the corner and added the flowers and buttons. The papers are all scraps and the base is Kraft. I decorated the inside as well.

This is SO sweet and so very thoughtful. Our good friends just lost their family dog this past week. I always buy people who lose a dog a particular children's book about that subject. But this is just such a caring sentiment. You are so kind, and thanks for sharing this in our challenge.
Blessings to you,
Word Art Wednesday
