Sympathy Card #5

Hello, everyone! Today I am sharing yet another sympathy card! I've been making them for my Mom to have on hand when needed.  I went with a clean-and-simple style for this one.


I was inspired by the Forget-Me-Not challenge at Double D Challenges, specifically the blue colour and the flower theme. Here is their inspiration graphic.



Here is a list of supplies I used:

  • Image:  Graphics Fairy Vintage Botanical (fussy-cut and popped up with foam tape)
  • Die: Simon Says Stamp With Sympathy
  • Embossing Folder:  Unknown
  • Accent:  Simon Says Stamp gems

Challenges:  
Beccy's Place January AG UE; Come and Get It Embossing 1/3; Craft Your Passion Always AG 3/3; Crafting for All Seasons Monochome 1/3; Creative Inspiration Florals UE; DL.ART January AG UE 1/day; Fresh Brewed Blog AG 2/5; Glitter n Sparkle Monochrome 1/3; HIMCR Embossing (dry) 2/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; Pixie's Snippet Playground Snippets used for die-cut sentiment and blue strip 1/3; Sparkles Monthly Monochomatic Blues 1/3; Sweet Stamps AG UE; The Paper Shelter Shades of Blue 1/3

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