Sympathy Card

This week I heard that the mother of a classmate of mine passed away. She was such a wonderful and talented lady! When she became a widow she started up her own florist shop and the bouquets she arranged were out of this world beautiful! I remember one time she did a gorgeous bouquet of red roses and evergreens as it was during the Christmas season. So I decided that my card would carry a similar bouquet in memory of her.


The roses are from the Gina K. Designs A Year of Flowers 2 set and the sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Sympathy Duo set. I used a masking technique to create a multiple set of roses and then colored them with Copics. I used the evergreen bough die from Diemond Dies to add my greenery behind the popped up roses. I just love that beautiful evergreen die and will be finding many occasions for it's use I am sure.

Well, another week is gone again! Time goes so fast it seems but then I guess that is always the case when one is busy! I hope your week was a great one.

God bless,
Verna
