PTI Sketch Challenge

Todays contest at Papertrey Ink the challenge was to choose a sketch and create a project based on it. I chose sketch #5, I love the simplicity of this sketch.

Unfortunately today was spent preparing to visit the funeral home. A very good friends husband lost his battle with cancer. As I was at the florist I seen this poem that was very fitting so I decided to use it on my card. This is my first sympathy card, I find them very hard to do.

This is the inside with the rest of the poem.
God saw you getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around you,
And whispered “Come to me”.
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest.
God broke our hearts
to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
This is short post, it has been a long day. Good night all.
