  1. Hi Diana,
    you ask us a difficould question. I think it depends on the person-what was, if she loved glitter, then yes.
    I hope I help you.
    I pray for you and your angels friends
    Hugs Tamara

  2. Diana, I may not be the right person to answer this because I LOVE glitter on EVERYTHING!!! My family says ribbon and glitter are my!!! I think the card is very nice and looks great -- but it depends I guess on a person's taste.

    Personally, I like it and I think you did a fantastic job!

  3. Another pretty card. II agree with Tamara, it depends on the person.

    Have a great day.
    Hugs Nana

  4. Beautiful, Elegant Card. I honestly love the Glitter.

  5. So pretty...I like the glitter! Lee-Ann :)

  6. I love the card. I think the card is a little muted for the glitter embellishment. What if you used an irredescent cardstock? Sometimes they are subtle enough to add just a little pop. Or how about some of the coredinations and then distress it just a bit. It all depends on the recipient and the situation of the sympathy. I love the colors and I love the card.

  7. I agree that it depends on the person but I think that all cards pretty much are like that. I wouldn't give certain cards to certain people anyway. The card is pretty. I would like to see it again done with Kim's suggestions. Thank you for sharing with us at 613 Avenue Create. We look forward to having you visit again in our neighborhood soon & often. Hugs~Patti

  8. Beautiful card Diana. I saw this on MIM..Loz

  9. Its PERFECT!Simply Beautiful!!
    Have a wonderful day,

  10. I love glitter and CAS cards. I think your card is perfect especially if you have to make many of them. Glad you decided to share it with us at 613 Avenue Create!

  11. It 's so difficult to make a sympathy card, so personal, but you have kept it clean and simple, just right. Thanks for joining in at That Craft Place x x

  12. I like this card and believe the gliite works well because it remind me also of a door key ready to be unlocked and isn't death another door that all of us have to pass through one day. That is just me but I think it is lovely. saw this on MIM

  13. Very nice CAS card...the glitter really sets it off. Thanks for playing over at 613 Avenue Create.

  14. Hi honey, I saw your card on Make It Monday and had to pop over to take a closer look. Such an elegant card for a sad occasion. It's really difficult to make cards with this theme, but this is perfect.

  15. This card is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week. ^_^

  16. Hi Diana, I've fallen behind as I wasn't feeling well again for a little bit.. but I've looked through all of your gorgeous creations. Everything you make is lovely. Regarding your question, I will answer it with the answer my sweetheart always gives me when I question a creative decision I've made: Anything made for a hurting heart will be loved and treasured and perfect. The heart and gesture are what truly shine forth, particularly in cards of this nature. If you felt led to use glitter, then trust it will bring a sparkle to their heart. :o) Thinking of you and sending you all my love.

    Hugs and blessings!

  17. Hmm...tough one. I think a mat card stock would be good. I wouldn't give the glitter to a male recipient. I agree about the background paper, I think it would be nice without any additional papers. Maybe if you embossed the background then put the die on top of that. I do like this though but you could get so many different looks with the same die and stamp. So sorry you've had to make so many. Thank you for sharing this with us at 613 Avenue Create this week.
