With Heartfelt Sympathy -- for Imagine That! Digis by Kris

Hello, my crafty friends.  I hope you are having a good week so far.  I can't believe how fast August is going!  I am almost 2 months into my 3 month guest designing stint at Imagine That! Digis by Kris.    I am so grateful to Kristy Breach and her design team for this opportunity!

Today, I am sharing a sympathy card that I made for a very special lady.  She died recently in our nursing home after living there for 8 years.  Her husband came everyday to visit her and help her with her lunch.  She had Alzheimer's Disease, so she slipped away from him and the family little by little.  I had the privilege of playing organ at her funeral and wanted a very special card to take with me to the service.  Here is what I created, using an Imagine That! Digis by Kris digi: 

I used the beautiful Poppy file and colored it with Copic markers.  It also comes in a pre-colored version if you're short on time. The sentiment is from Sentimental Thoughts set, and is thoughtfully (pun intended) included with the Poppy file.

I used 2 sets of papers on this card -- 2 of them are found in the Freda's Flower Basket set (top 2 papers pictured below)

The green polka dot paper is from the Sunshine & Rain Digi Paper Pack.

I cut the center step card out on my Silhouette Cameo using a file from the Silhouette Design Store.  The butterflies are dies from Cheery Lynn.
