Sympathy - Leaf Doodle

Hello, friends. Today I am sharing a sympathy card.  My parents have asked me to make a few more sympathy cards for their stash as they seem to need these most of all, unfortunately.  So I'll be making some more sympathy cards over the next few weeks.  For this card, I used Leaf Doodle 4 from Scribbles Designs.  I recently won some prizes over at Scribbles Designs Challenges, and the owner Sandy is such a nice lady, and so very talented.  I think you will like her beautiful designs - I am particularly fond of her flower doodles - go check them out here.  I wanted to play along in Scribbles Designs Shades of White challenge so I kept this as white as possible, only colouring the image with some green Prismacolor pencils.

I followed this sketch at Feeling Sketchy - first time I've played over there:

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Sentiment:  Create with TLC (a freebie at one point - thank you, Paulette)
  • Ribbon:  May Arts, Offray
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Swirls and Birds
  • Die:  Nellie's Multiframes Circles (for sentiment)
  • Cardstock:  Staples
  • Pearls:  Dollarama
