Last of Sympathy cards for Men...

I'm so glad to have finished all of the sympathy cards for the men.  It's not really that difficult for me, it's just that I like to use brighter colors than I've used on the three cards here.  (I do like the color combinations, just not for so many cards back to back).  This image is one I colored about a year ago. The two previous ones I colored a couple of weeks ago.

This is about as close to clean and simple as I've gotten. This is a stamp from a company called: "Heartfelt Creations", from a little store, which unforunately I can't remember the name of.  I have always liked waterwheels, and couldn't pass this one up. It was colored with my Prismacolor pencils. And I added  clear Stickles to the water. The one and only DP is from K&Co. I didn't want to get too fancy since this was for a man, and a sympathy card at that. I did stack up the buttons, that were from my stash for an "altered" look for Top Tip Challenge.
