With Sympathy



Unfortunately we have been needing quite a few sympathy cards lately and even though I would love to use this as an Easter card, I decided to create something that could be sent either as a sympathy or simply a card to someone struggling. My inside sentiment is from a Gina K set "Comfort and Peace". This card came together so quickly using Doodle Pantry's newly released this month set "Lion and Lamb" which comes with the combined animals as well as individual ones with multiple sentiments including the Peace that I overlaid on the Lion and Lamb. The Tim Holtz embossing folder was added to give some texture, but I just wanted to keep this very simple. We have a challenge going on now at Doodle Pantry's challenge blog and invite you enter your card, this month we are giving the new set "Quirky Bunny" just for playing and if you need to purchase something, don't forget the new set "English Bluebells" which is free with any purchase.
                             

                             

Here is the inside of my card:


I colored this beautiful image using Prismacolor pencils and oms.

Be sure and check out Doodle Pantry and join in on all of the fun.
Thanks for stopping by.

Patti this is lovely. I made my card into an Easter card but a sympathy card would work also. Thanks for the inspiration!
