Sympathy cards

I was asked to make a few sympathy cards, so thought I'd start with my 'go to' sympathy flowers from Whipper Snapper.

For my first card, I coloured my flowers with watercolour pencils. I had a little tiny snippet left of this dotty DP, so used it to paper piece a couple of flowers.  Clear bling added for a bit of sparkle.

For my second card I again used my watercolour pencils, but also added some Spectrum Noir sparkle to the flowers and clear gloss to the jar.
Dienamics stitched rectangle and also scribble dies.

  3. Both cards are so pretty! Love the paper-piecing, but I also really like the watercolored flowers with some sparkle. I bet these cards were very much appreciated.
