Need Sympathy Cards...

Unfortunately, I recently found myself in need of several sympathy cards in just a matter of weeks. I hate to rush to make a card at the last minute as I was doing then, so, I am trying to build up a little stash of sympathy cards and hope I never have to use them.

I stamped the flower and colored it with Copics. I clear embossed it twice. Then I brayered Bordering Blue and a bit of Blue Bayou at an angle in the upper right (you could sponge or airbrush for a similar effect). I brayered Old Olive and a bit of Always Artichoke at an angle in the bottom left. The sentiment is actually two different stamps. I love how FireCracker Designs by Pamela images always work together within a set and across various sets!
