I Keep On Falling

I found another card that intimidates me! Accidents!
How do you express you care without being too cute or too insensitive?
This is for my friend Sarah, who was in a car accident not too long ago.  
Although she did not have to go to the hospital, her car is totaled 
and she is still in a tremendous amount of pain.  The images I had were a
little too cutsey for the look I was going for.  I was trying to
find something that would be perfect for her.  Her last home
was decorated in lots of reds and Toile, so I thought the paper
was perfect.  Then I saw this image I had downloaded
awhile ago from TLC and thought that they complimented
 one another nicely.  I just did not want her to think I was
minimizing her accident or the pain that she is in.

I put Diamond Glaze on the shoes and
paper pieced the dress

I'll say it again, Thank You Yenni!

B. Write 3 sweet moments happened in your life 
#1 I found this kitten that I was all set to bring home, but was waiting
 for my husband to come get me.  When he arrived he said "Is this the
cat you want?" I replied "Yes, this is the one!"  He then said "No!"
I was crushed and walked so fast he could not catch up to me.
Then when we got to the car, there sat a kitten that he had looked
for all day to surprise me!!! Awwww!!  He was quickly forgiven! 

#2 On Our 15th Wedding Anniversary we gave each other 
15 gifts.  Most of them small gifts.  He had mine all wrapped

Good morning, Stacey!
I think, you did very well: the black card base tells her, that you don´t minimize anything - it looks quite serious - but the picture is lovely, and so is the black/white patterned paper. The touch of "red" is also perfect to cheer it up a little... I think, she´ll love it!
IMO you made a perfect card for this situation!
Have a nice week!
Hugs, Uli
Today I´m still at home - waiting for the chimneysweeper... I hope he´ll come soon...
