Beloved Blossoms

I just wanted to share a symapthy card that I made for a friend of mine after her Dad passed away. Sympathy cards always seem so hard to make for me, and perhaps it is just because of what it is being a sympathy card. It is always a rough time. So I wanted to share this card in case others get blocked like I do when they have to make these cards.

The stamp set is called Beloved Blossoms and I stamped the large flower in Orchid Bouquet ink then just rolled the edges of the flower in Petal ink to give it just a little shade varation. The phrase came from the Comforting Thoughts set. The paper is from the Floral Tapestry paper packet and the colors are Garden Green, Orchid Bouquet and Colonial White. The flowers are from the Autumn Daisy Paper Flowers collection and the brad used with the flowers is from the Mini Medley Accents Summer Celebration Collection. There is also a Silver Photo Clip used by the stamped image of the flower. The main base of Garden Green cardstock is also crumpled just a bit to give it some texture.
