A Sympathy Card with Spring Flowers

I'm checking in to share this sympathy card.  I've had more cause this year to make sympathy cards and they never get easier.  I decided to go with a very pale watercolor theme for this card.  I stamped the Simon Says Stamp's Spring Flowers and leaves onto Bristol cardstock and then used my Clean Color markers and a waterbrush to finish the accent.  I fussy cut out the flowers and the leaf stems.  I used my Mission Gold watercolors to make a soft wash for the background and splattered some of the rose gold Starry Colors watercolor over the background.  A simple sentiment in London Fog grey ink.

Since Sorry is a word that starts with an "S", I've decided to link this card up with the City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 372 - Something Beginning With S.  That's why I sent the card - because of something beginning with S.

I've also linked to the following challenges:

    Thank you for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge xxx

  5. Wonderful card. Thanks for blessing us with your creation at Word Art Wednesday. Please join us again in our current challenge. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Philippians 1:6 which says, "For I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." Have a blessed day!
