A VERY Green Sympathy Card with FSJ

It is a beautiful sunny evening in Michigan! It got up to 46* today...the snow is melting...the smell of Spring is in the air! I know we probably aren't done with Winter yet but the promise of Spring is evident. The change of the seasons...especially Springtime...reminds me of God's perfect plan for renewal. Fall and Winter seem to proclaim death but Spring brings new hope and new life. Great reminder that even though we all must face death, those of us who die "in Christ" (believing in His saving work on the cross) will rise again to a new life. We have the "Hope of Heaven"!


Butterflies on a sympathy card seem very appropriate to me...that promise of renewal.
The glitter looks a bit blue but its really not...just VERY sparkley! My favorite!


All of the products I used to make this card are from Fun Stampers Journey. That's the crafting company I joined a few months ago. They have so much amazing stuff in their line-up! Everything from beautiful, intricate designs to artsy flowers to cute children's favorites; paper, ribbon, twine, inks, stamps, dies + more! For more information about FSJ you can check out the website or read a little about it in my sidebar. If you'd like to become part of this fun and successful company you can email me with questions (but everything you need to know is really on their informative website!). My email is Fivensandie<at>aol.com
I'd love to hear from you! And a NEW perk is they just revealed 2 more Starter Kit options which are smaller than the original so you don't have to invest as much if you don't care to. To see all 3 options go to Fun Stampers Journey and click on "Become a Coach". Why not make money doing what you love and have the fun of working with great products and wonderful people?!

Ok, back to my card! Here are the items used...all from FSJ:
Stamps- "Damask Print", 
Greet & Shout" (oval), 
"Enjoy the Journey" (butterflies), 
"Thoughtful Greetings" (sentiment)
Dies- "Butterflies"
Inks- "Green Olive", "Black Licorice"
Glitter- "Sparkle Dust"
Ribbon- "Green Olive"
Paper- "Zombie Nights" (Green),
"Whip Cream" (white)
Rhinestones- OOPS! Not FSJ! They are from Pizzazz Aplenty!
