Sympathy Card

I am always looking for images to use for Sympathy cards.  They are the hardest for me.  Daisy Doodles has a new image that I think is perfect for Easter and Sympathy.  Here is my card:

I love this image.  I tried to keep this card real simple.  I started with a blank white card.  I colored the image with Prisma Pencils and OMS and inked around the very edge with yellow and matted it on white...matted on yellow embossed with Swiss Dots CB Folder and border punched with MS Punch and added a ribbon.  I then added a piece of yellow paper ribbon and cut out out the sentiment with an Oval Nestie.  I then inked around the edge of the whole card with yellow ink.  

I plan on making several Sympathy Cards with this image to have on hand.   I also made an Easter Card with this image..but I will post it tomorrow.   The image is called Floral Cross and you can see it on Daisy Doodles Blog or you can purchase it HERE for $1.45  (great price).  This stamp was very quick and easy to color.  I hope you like what I have done with it.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Cute Daisy May ..... Anything Goes

Rhonda this is wonderful and I like that it is simple since it is sympathy. I have not made a sympathy yet because I have not found the image until now that is. Thanks.

So beautiful. Love the soft colors and organdy ribbon, just the perfect touches for a sympathy card. The embossed cardstock adds great texture, too.
