With Deepest Sympathy

Sympathy cards are always difficult for me, usually I only make them as I need, but that always puts me under pressure to get them done in a timely manner, so I thought I should make a couple to keep in my stash.

These poppies from Aurora Wings are really getting a work-out this month, this is the third time I've used them!

I coloured them in turquoise again, since that worked so beautifully last time I did it and paired them with a computer generated sentiment and papers from My Minds Eye in shades of turquoise. It's hard to tell on the picture but I fussy cut a second poppy image and popped them up on some foam pads to give a little dimension to the image. Otherwise, I kept it fairly simple and embellished with just a few clear gems.

I'm submitting this for:

- Crafting from the Heart #70 - Anything Goes
- Make My Monday Challenge - Flowers
- Digi Designs Challenge Blog - Monochromatic
