Color Blooms Sympathy Card

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Barbara - thank you for joining me!  Barbara, please leave a link to your blog in the comments and I will hop over and follow you too!

I've made another card for my Mom's sympathy card stash.  She has been sending out a lot of sympathy cards lately and she asked me to make some more for her.  I'm hoping to make a total of 10. This is the third one, so I have several more to make and share. 


Digital Colouring Page:  STAMPlorations Color Blooms Sampler (freebie, thank you, Shery!)
Dies:  Sympathy (Sweet Dixie Thinking of You Set), butterfly
Distress Ink:  Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean
Other:  Platinum Stickles (added to center of flowers)

Again I'm joining the celebration over at STAMPlorations!  Shery and her team are celebrating five years of STAMPloration with a big party!  I hope you will check it out!


The STAMPlorations birthday challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls.  I decided to CASE STAMPgirl Carol's card - I was inspired by the colours, florals, butterfly, and card design.

You've selected a wonderful combination of images and colours for a sympathy card; one that is sure to touch the heart of the person receiving it. I'm thrilled that my card served as inspiration; your 'less busy' version certainly has sparked new ideas for a revisit of STAMPloration flowers on my end. Thank you!
