Bloomdala Bliss Sympathy

Hello, everyone! I've been doing some colouring! I decided to have another go at this beautiful free digital at STAMPlorations called Bloomdala Bliss Sampler (thank you, Shery!). You can see my first card using this image here. STAMPlorations is celebrating National Colouring Book Day this month with a Linky Party and giveaway.

Sadly I've been sending out a number of sympathy cards lately.  I find them difficult to make so I like to have some made in advance to be ready when needed.

I coloured the image with markers and fussy-cut.  I adhered it to a second print-out of the image, which I ink-blended with Distress Oxides, and popped up the leaves with foam tape.  I stamped the sympathy sentiment (Gina K. Designs) and then finished off the card with lots of red gems.

I would like to support the following challenges: Ally's Angels 25 AG 2/3; Cardz TV 97 AG 1/3; Crafty Friends 117 Add Embellishments (I added gems) 1/3; DL.ART August AG UE 2/d; Double D Pearls, Gems, or Rhinestones 1/3; Imagine That Digis Creative Playground 8 AG 2/3; Polkadoodles 35 AG 1/2; Scribbles Designs Include a Sentiment 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Monday S is for... Sympathy 1/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 1/5; STAMPlorations Theme and Sketch Stamps and AG (sentiment is a clear stamp) UE; STAMPlorations Never-ending AG UE; Word Art Wednesday 402-403 AG 1/5 wk1

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