For a friend: Sympathy

 

Yesterday I mentioned making some cards for friends the past week.  This was a card I made for a friend who lost her father recently.  I never know what types of images to make on sympathy cards, but thought this image would work well.
I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #60 for this card.  I opted not to do a long card & to rotate the sketch.

I don't use purple much, it's just not one of the colors I go towards, but am trying to go outside my comfort zone this year and grab colors which I normally wouldn't grab.

I'm loving all the paper flowers I'm seeing everywhere.  I am having fun making them and think I need to rummage through all my scraps and make a bunch of them to just throw on cards...you'll be seeing a few more with these flowers on them this week.

Hope you are having a good "hump" day!

Cardstock:  Purpilicious from Clear & Simple Stamps, Kraft, Basic Grey Wisteria

Wow Kim, this is wonderful. I was trying to make a sympathy card the other day and couldn't get it out of me.

This is absolutely a gorgeous card. Love all the layers.

I just made a purple card for Flutter By this week. I think purple is the hot color this week.
