With Deepest Sympathy

Happy Friday everybody! I just have to say, for a short work week it sure felt long. It probably doesn't help that the sun is shinning here finally. I would much rather be outside enjoying it instead of looking at it from my office window. My window faces a little park and I get to see all the kids playing..what a joyous site. Earlier in the week one of my co-workers lost her grandma at the age of 105. Can you imagine all that she has seen over the years? Here is the card I made for her.

I stamped the flowers then I added a touch of color with a Copic marker. I used my new Simple Stripes Impression plate from PTI...LOVE it! Then I added some pearls to the flower centers and rounded some corners to finish it off.

Yep..this card has dimension too. The white panel was attached with foam tape and the flowers were attached with my dots.

Thanks for stopping by,
