Sympathy Flowers

Hi there!  I'm working on a 32-card special order at the moment and 2 of those need to be sympathy cards.  Just Add Ink is looking for sympathy cards this week and I used the photo from Fusion for inspiration.  The photo immediately made me think of Papertrey Ink's Gracious Vases set but I ended up using the little cluster of flowers instead of the orchid image.  I am loving the Stitched Arches dies from MFT - they make such fun little frames!  Gotta dash and get dinner going.  Have a lovely evening!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Tempting Turquoise, Smokey Slate) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flowers & vase from Gracious Vases, Sentiment from Mat Stack 2) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Melon Mambo) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Stitched Arch Stax) My Favourite Things
Gems:  Recollections

This is my kind of sympathy card, Jen. CAS - loving that pop of colour on an otherwise clean slate. The stitched arch die lends itself well to your chosen image and sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week, and good luck getting through such a big card order. x
