Sympathy Card

My friend's brother passed away and I wanted to make a nice card for her.  I realized I didn't have any stamps for making sympathy cards so I took an afternoon and went to Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Joanne's.  The pickins were slim but I managed to come up with a couple of stamps.  I know what I'll be looking for at the next expo I go to.

I used Black Magic cardstock and a Cuddlebug embossing folder to create the background. I sanded the embossing to bring out the green design.

The flowers were stamped in Olive Green Stazon then colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  I went over the image with a Versamark pen and heat set clear embossing powder.  I used a script background stamp and Dove Gray Stazon to add the script on top of the flowers. 

The cardstock is Stampin Up River Rock.

Here is the inside of the card:

It's hard to be creative when you are sad.  But I'm sure she will appreciate the thought.
