Hollyhocks Sympathy (Impression Obsession)

Hi,everyone.  I mentioned earlier today that my stash of sympathy cards is running low so I'm back again with another one.  I hope I don't need to use it any time soon.  This one features Impression Obsession dies.  The IO Blog is having a Square Cards challenge and it's been a while since I've played along over there.  Here's my square card.

I finished the inside as well.  Funny, I used the same cardstock but the photo below has faded the colours.

This is such a lovely sympathy card, Kitty, inside as well as outside. That verse says it all. I've been seeing that hollyhocks die on other blogs and do love it and love how you have used it on your card! Hmmm, more NBUS heading my way, no doubt!! Thanks so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

This is a beautiful card, such a thoughtful sentiment.

Donna Ellis said...

How lovely, KT! It's beautiful. The sentiment is especially lovely, dear friend, and so pretty in the purples and lavenders you have chosen. Don't you hate when our cameras do not play nicely with the lighting? In July, we purchased our first smart phones ( iPhones ), and I have found that the camera on my iPhone surpasses my regular camera and is easier to use! Who would have thought that? xo
