SSCB Stetch #40

Hello Bleeps(blog peeps!)
I had to make a sad card today for someone that I know. She just found out she has breast cancer. Please keep Tammy in your prayers. She has very good spirits,which is awesome! I was kinda 'stuck' so I used the challenge sketch over at Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog. I did change the sketch a tad....but not much. It took me awhile to get the measurements just right. I hope you like it,even though it's for a sad occasion. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! ;)

My best to your friend, it is always hard to make those kind of cards. I made one a couple months ago for the same reason. Happy to say they got all the cancer. Your card is beautiful though.
