With Sympathy....

I am trying to fill in the blanks in my card categories and needed
some of the dreaded sympathy cards, so neccesary
but the ones we hate to send out.

After stamping the poppy on the same mustard card stock that I used
for my second layer, I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers,
adding Want2Scrap gems for the center. I stamped 
the image on ivory with Versafine Vintage Sepia and 
after fussy cutting the colored flower, I used foam
dots to layer it over the image on the ivory die cut.
The butterfly is a die from Heartfelt Creations, I cut
another piece of the mustard card stock as well as
a dictionary page at the same time, using Rusty
Hinge distress ink to add some depth. 

I used sketch #301 from Sketch Saturday  as my inspiration.

I am also entering this at Twisted Tuesday Challenges
Don't go near the edge - the twist, use old book,
dictionary or script paper on your project.

I love how quickly this came together and may have to give this
design another go with different stamps.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
Happy Day!
