Floral Sympathy

Hi, everybody!  I have been making sympathy cards lately and I have another one to share. This card will be kept on hand for when needed. I like to make them ahead of time. You may recognize this floral pattern and colour combo from my card posted yesterday as I used the same colouring page.

Digital Colouring Page: STAMPlorations Color Blooms Sampler (freebie, thank you, Shery!)
Clear Stamp:  Sentiment (Taylored Expressions Care and Comfort II)
Dies: Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One
Distress Ink:  Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Cracked Pistachio
Other:  Diamond Stickles (added to center of flowers), clear sequins

I'm joining the STAMPlorations 5th birthday celebration! There is so much amazing inspiration over there that I can't help myself! Have you checked it out yet? Prepare to be inspired!

The STAMPlorations birthday challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls. I decided to CASE STAMPgirl Julie's card - I was inspired by the colours, the florals, and the card design and couldn't wait to CASE it!

I would also like to support the following challenges: Ally's Angels AG 2/3; Crafty Calendar Three of Something (sequins) 2/3; Crafty Creations AG 1/2; Creatalicious AG Optional Flowers UE; DL.ART June AG Linky 1/d; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 3/3; The House that Stamps Built Repeat Impressions Anything Goes Challenge ~ J2718; Through the Craft Room Door AG 2/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment Wk2 1/5

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Another gorgeous vertical! Glad you entered this in the PIP challenge as well. While we would all like to do away with the need for sympathy cards, it's nice to see how others create them.
