With Sympathy

A sympathy card is never an easy one to make but I hope this will bring some comfort to the family.  The poppies seemed appropriate as I associate poppies with remembrance. 

I stamped the poppies, stems and pods onto Bella's Bestest paper in Wild Cherry ink and Jellybean Green ink.  I used copics to colour the middle of the poppies.  The background paper is embossed with Square Tiles Stencil. 

I inked the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink and stamped it onto a piece of vellum that I cut out using the Fishtail Flags Layers Stax.  I adhered the banner with two black brads and I like how it's "floating" at one end.

I kept the inside blank with lots of room for writing.  The copics I used were E43, Y26 and Y28.
