These always so hard to make...Sympathy cards, best to keep them simple. This card, though, I wanted it to have some color and not be in the usual subtle colors you find in sympathy cards in stores. This is also my first try ever making a "Masking" card. I think I did a good enough job on it.

*Background Paper - From Michael's single sheet rack, is called "Green Swirl" by Recollections.
*Center Panel - Solid white and green cardstock from my scrap box.
*Bow/Ribbon - I made the bow using a satin-edged sheer ribbon.
*Sentiment - Close to My Heart "Sincere Expressions Occasions" acrylic stamp set.
*Flowers - I used the stamping technique with a Stampendous "Agapanthus" rubber stamp. I colored the flower centers with a gold metallic ink Gellyroll pen, then I used Wink of Stella in clear glitter on the flowers for some bling. It shows up very nice on the actual card, than the photo. :(:(
