Sympathy Card

Hi everyone! We are back from vacation and let me tell you, we had a wonderful time. We went along the north shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota and it was absolutely beautiful. Loved every minute of it and a great time together as a family.

So, since I have been gone, I don't have a recent card for you but I do have an older one for you that I did for a submission call but it wasn't picked up. The call was for a sympathy card, and for these kind of cards I like to keep them simple. I usually always put some kind of flowers on the card because they make me think of peaceful things, and we all want reminders of that when a loved one has passed away.

This daffodil stamp is from Papertrey Ink from their year of flowers stamps. Every month Nicole Heady introduces a new flower for that particular month and this flower was from the month of March. You can view it HERE.

Supplies:
cardstock, patterned paper, stamps, ribbon, scalloped border die - Papertrey Ink
ink - Tsukineko
gems - Kaiser Craft
markers - Copic
