A SYMPATHY CARD


I was asked by a friend to make a sympathy card for her to give to a friend and I thought, what better image to use than one of Laurie's lilies! This is one of the great flower digistamps that are available in the Doodle Pantry online digishop. use the Doodle Pantry link on the right to check out the other great images that are there!
In my opinion sympathy cards need to be un-fussy and un-cluttered, and that's what I think I achieved here! The lily digistamp is matted on dark green cardstock, and then onto glossy cream cardstock. A ribbon, three flat backed pearls and simple, heartfelt sentiment complete, what I think, is a really serene card.
