Sympathy Card

Hello blogger friends.  We had slushy snow this cold and dreary Monday.  Yuck and double yuck.  The good news is that the snow was mostly gone when I got home from work.  The bad news is that it was pitch black when I pulled in my driveway at 5:15pm.  Poor doggies only got their morning walk.  It was still raining pretty good and the thought of cold/dark walk didn't inspire me.

Today's post is a soft and subtle sympathy card.  A woman that my husband knows through a vendor at work lost her father and he wanted a card that the guys (and gal) at the office could send to her.

The image is from A*Muse and is one of my only A*Muse florals.  This one is very delicate and I added just a tad of bling using my spica pen.  It doesn't show in the picture but it does add a nice sparkle.

I'm loving this color scheme - so subtle and sweet.  I combined chocolate chip, very vanilla and so saffron.  I also stamped the inside and the envelope so it looks like a matched set.

I'm sure the woman appreciated the gesture of kindness from her work colleagues and I was happy to create this for them to use.
