With Sympathy

My uncle passed away unexpectedly last Thursday morning, so I've been spending some time in my craft studio making sympathy cards for my family.

I made two cards using sketch 289 at Freshly Made Sketches.
Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

When I saw the samples created by the FMS DT, I was really inspired by Kim's card and thought to myself---I have some flower dies that are very similar to that. Hmmmm...and the mojo was set into motion. The adorable die-cut flowers on my cards are from Bloomers 4 by Taylored Expressions. Aren't they sweet?!?! A BIG THANK YOU to Taylor for giving this die set to those of us who attended the April 2017 Stamping Away Retreat in Kansas!!! And HUGS to Kim for the creative inspiration!

Thanks for visiting today!
