With Sympathy to Kayleigh's family

As you may know, Kayleigh passed away last night at 9:44 PM. The family has shared their address, so I thought it fitting that I send a card using the stamp that was purchased in their baby girl's honor.

Yep, this one is pretty much the same as the other card I did, however this one has a larger image, I used the intended Copic color for the baby blanket and I added a little "bling" using my Sakura Gelly Roll Pens. The envelope is a white A2 envelope that I added a strip of the striped paper to and punched using a Martha Stewart heart punch.

This is the inside of the card. It says:
An angel opened up the book of life,
to record the baby's birth,
and whispered as she closed the book
"Too beautiful for earth".
The sentiment is printed on a cream/tan cardstock and the edge is colored using a Stampin' Up ink pad. The background paper is the same striped paper as the front of the card and punched with the MS heart punch. The inside of the envelope also has the striped paper.
I cannot imagine what this family is going through and I know that a card isn't going to bring their sweet baby back to them, but..........
Pin It!

How sad. :-( You never want to hear of anyone dying, much less a child. I can't even imagine.... But that's a BEAUTIFUL sentiment. I'm sure they will treasure your card.
