A Sad Occasion - 3

Finally I’m through with sympathy cards for one family. This is for the sister.  She’s taking it hard, too, because he was younger than she is.  I hate that it took me so long to get the cards done, but my health was giving me more problems than usual.

I hope she will like this because I took a chance in doing tulips and used what I would consider non-traditional colors.

I was going to use soft colors, but I just couldn’t find papers in my stash that I really needed, so I decided to us distress inks. As in the last card, the image is by Fred She Said. They do such pretty flowers, as well as other images.  The papers are DCWV and the image is colored with Prismacolors.

The die cuts are Nestibilities and the punches on the inside are MS.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

A lovely card DJ. I always find it hard to do sympathy cards, finding the right balance for colours etc. You did a great job on them all, I'm sure the recipients appreciate them.
Luv, Babs xo
