In Sympathy

I needed another sympathy card this week. So I went to my go to stamps - flowers.

The image is from Doodle Pantry called Sweet Pea. I used the pre-colored image but I colored in the background. It's a bit difficult to see in the picture but the background looks marbleized and it looked really pretty. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations and cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio. The image is behind a negative circle die cut and then I made the frame from the two circle dies. The background paper is from the Paper Studio.
Don't forget to check out the Doodle Pantry challenge #38. Just for playing along you get the free set called Jingle Ants. You won;t want to miss this one. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope your week is off to a great start!

The image is just beautiful with the background paper you chose and the little hint of blue is just perfect. I have this SB die but rarely use it. Why? I have no idea because it's just the right size for short and sweet sentiments. Great job using the negative space technique! TFS

REally strange that I see your beautiful card through my email because I follow you, but when I got to your post, the image of the card is a big white space. Maybe my computer is playing games with me knowing I don't feel well this morning. I always dislike making sympathy cards but when it's time I try my best. Yours is beautiful and I will save for future inspiration if I can save from my email....haha.

Wow your card is outstanding. From all the layering, to design and coloring of image. Your eye for detail is splendid and really makes this creation a show stopper. Just love how the flower pops and the design is wonderful.
