With Deepest Sympathy


I am so happy to be able to use another awesome Doodle Pantry image.  Unfortunately, I am using it for a sad occasion.  My great uncle passed away yesterday.  He was 92.  He was the last of my grandmother's siblings.  She actually made it to 93 before she passed away.  I wasn't really close with him but I do adore his daughter.  This card will be going out to her.

I decided to use the English Bluebells from Doodle Pantry.  I thought they were so pretty.  I colored them with Copics, cut them out and popped them up with SU dimensionals.  I wanted to keep the card as simple as I could.  I usually don't add sentiments (which is strange because I call my blog Sydney's Sentiments).  I was told by many customers at a craft show that they liked an image but not the sentiment so I just quit putting them on my cards.  I think I will start again.  A great sentiment came with this particular image and I am wishing I would have put it on here.  The sentiment is I am so sorry. 

My thoughts and prayers go out to all my family members.  We have suffered several losses in the last few years including my mother who passed away last year.

What a beautiful card - the coloring on the flowers is so realistic - like you could reach out and touch the flower itself.
