Apothecary Art - Sympathy Card

It had been awhile since I used my Apothecary Art stamp set and matching framelits but I really love them. When I needed a sympathy card I immediately thought of them. I wanted to make the card with soft colours and do some individual colouring of the flowers, so this is what I made:


The designer series paper is retired now, but everything else is current.
The colours in the flowers are Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder and Pistachio Pudding. The stamp is stamped on Whisper White in Memento Black ink and the sentiment is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock then trimmed to be popped up on the main image. I also popped up the main image on Pink Pirouette. The whole card front is adhered to a Very Vanilla card base.

Susan, I wish I had put all the Christmas cards in one box before the move, are still missing some so have had to make new ones. =)

Such a beautiful card Susan, I love the colours you have chosen for the flowers. I also like the colour of the papers you have used as they are soft and gentle.
