Verve's Diva Inspiration Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to the Diva Inspiration Hop for December. I needed a sympathy card for a family that lost a child. I thought all of the hearts where perfect, but I wanted to single out just one. So I colored one single heart red to make it more special. The border heart stamp in from the Verve set Hundred Hearts, the sympathy sentiment is a Plain Jane.
