CASE this Sketch with Reverse Confetti

The new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch caught my eye because it works exactly with the Doin' the Wave die that I recently got from Reverse Confetti.  I decided to also play along with the Reverse Confetti Color Challenge and make a melting heart in bright colors. Unfortunately, that color challenge ended yesterday but I want to credit them anyway.

May14ColorChallenge

I got this card done and then an idea started to take shape.  A long-time friend (since we were 2 years old) lost her battle to cancer a year and a half ago. I have really needed to make a card for her husband but just didn't know what to do.   May would have been their wedding anniversary and June would have been her birthday.  I want him to know that I haven't forgotten. I had a trio of blue colors out from a card earlier this week and I had a stamp out that I had used for Memorial Day.  I thought that the blues would look like tears.

Cry

I'm thinking it's a few too many sequins for this man who is a firefighter and a mountain climber, but it was made with love and he'll know that.

Both of your cards are stunning, but it's the second, created in remembrance of your friend, to buoy the spirits of her husband, that has touched me deeply. You will bring tears to his eyes and yes, he will appreciate the sequins. A card made with love, indeed. As for the first...beautiful colours, shimmer and sparkle. Happy sighhh...

I LOVE these cards, they are absolutely stunning! The colours you used go so well together and the glitter on your first card really makes it pop. I find its very hard making sympathy cards. Its lovely that you remember your friend and want to let her husband know she's still in your thoughts. The sentiment is perfect and I'm sure he will love it.

Oh, Kim, I was admiring your pretty pink card, and then I saw your blue card and read the story! You made me tear up. It's a beautiful card, made with such beautiful thought. That sentiment is perfect, and I think this rugged man will appreciate it, even with all the sequins.
