Simple sympathy

This card was inspired by this week's featured stamper at Splitcoast ... here's Verity's original.  I changed mine to a sympathy card rather than Christmas, and also used a different die in the BG.

My image is from WhipperSnapper and is quickly turning into my 'go to' image for sympathy cards!  I've used 3 different shades of purple watercolour pencils on my flowers, but not sure if this shows up or not.  Dienamics peek-a-boo dots die.  Paper Smooches sentiment.  I also added in a few bits of bling just to brighten the card a bit.k
