When you make one sympathy card you might as well make a 2nd, or even a 3rd while you have the supplies out and ready. This card features Art Impressions Ornate Container, Chest of Flowers, Clay Pot and Foliage set. Marvy markers (15, 45, 86) were used to color the images on watercolor cardstock. A dark blue layer is between the card front and the card base. Grafix masking fluid was used to create the trellis. Black Soot archival ink was used on the Jody Poesy sentiment stamp.

When a loved one is buried a temporary marker is sometimes placed until the engraver has finished and delivered the forever one. The first time I went to the national cemetery where my husband's cremains were interred you can imagine my dismay and horror that a word was misspelled. He was my soul mate; but it was spelled 'soule mate'. Somewhere somehow somebody goofed. Big time.
I wrote a note saying that it needed to be corrected as this was a dishonor to my husband and a blot on the cemetery. Two weeks ago I returned to see if the niche marker had been corrected. It was replaced and is now correct. This is the card I sent to let them know I had seen the change. It probably wasn't necessary but I felt it was the right thing to do.
