My very first card

My boss's mother passed away a couple of weeks ago.  This is the sympathy card I made for him.  It's amazing the things you see in pictures that you don't see when you are looking at the actual card.


If you look at the upper left hand corner in the next picture you will see that this paper was actually for a football scrapbook page.  It is sort of an inside joke ... during football season whenever he would call her they would talk football, completely leaving their spouses out of the conversation.  So the football was intentional and, I hoped, almost not noticed.
