Sympathy Card

I really don't like making Sympathy card, but sometimes we have to.  My husband's Uncle passed away yesterday and this card will be given to my hubby's cousin. 

I created this card using the colors from Curtain Call Color Challenge - Act #66 and the sketch from The Paper Players Challenge #31 - Sketch Challenge.


I created my own paper for this card using Gina K Designs Spring Mix and Memento London Fog ink.  I used copic markers to color over the flowers with BV01, and I used R29 for the center of the flower.  It's not my best work on the rest of the design.  However, knowing that I was fighting a migraine as I finished this I'm happy with the results.  Even the slightly crooked sentiment.
