Thinking of You

Picture 080

I needed a Sympathy card – probably my least favorite kind to make. I want to bring a smile to the person’s face or a spot of color in an otherwise gray period and yet I want to be tasteful and not offend them by being “too happy” KWIM?!?!  Anywhoooo I used this flower image and painted my Twinkling H2O’s right onto the stamp before stamping it off 2 times (different colors for each part: Moss Green, Mango Mama & Cherry Sorbet) then I cut the pieces parts out and layered them to make a simple but colorful flower.  I used Making Memories paper from the Just Chillin’ line and then added the sentiment from CTMH stamped with Memento Desert Sand Ink. I hope that it brought some comfort to the recipient at the time and that perhaps the color brought her a moment of happiness when she needed it.

sympathy cards can be tough, like the soft colors you chose
