Sharing in your Sorrow

DSCF5569

The clean & simple challenge #37 today at SCS was to make a sympathy card....and I am sure lots of people used the Thoughts & Prayers set, but it has such great sentiments, it's just a natural go-to set:

I stamped my image in Certainly Celery, then went over it with a Chocolate Chip marker, coloring in the trunk and stems.  Retired Certainly Celery ribbon and a little Certainly Celery flower punched with the Flower Trio punch adds a simple touch; I carried the floral theme to the inside as well:

Rather than use a brad in each of the flower centers, I used my stylus to make a "center", then colored it with my Chocolate Chip marker.  Thanks for visiting today!

Oh, LeAnne! This is sooooooo pretty! Unfortunately, you can't have too many of these on hand. This would certainly bring a lot of comfort, no matter what the need! Gorgeous work, sweetie pie!
