Flower Sympathy

Sympathy cards are my least favorite cards to make.  I needed to make two this week.  Friends of ours lost their father.  He was a funny man and will be missed.

Here is the card that I created to send to them. 

The card stock that I used was from a local craft store, so I do not know the color name or brand.  The ribbon is from Offray.

I heat embossed the image and the sentiment.  The image is a stamp that I had on hand.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!. 

I colored the image and the sentiment background by rubbing the paper with ink.  I used Colorbox Yello Cadmium and Stampin' UP! Pale Plum, Yo Yo Yellow, Pumpkin Pie and Apricot Appeal.  I used yellow Stickles on the center of the flower.

I embossed the background layer with the Cuttlebug Victoria folder.  The sentiment was cut with Nestabilities.

Thanks for stopping by.   Have a great weekend!
