Serendipity Stamps Sympathy Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today is challenge day over at Serendipity Stamps, and this week we've been challenged to make a sympathy card using the following sketch:

And here is my card:

I knew right away I wanted to use this passage from Ecclesiastes (To Everything - 722E). I think it is a good reminder, especially for a sympathy card.

I stamped just a portion of the Orchid (1158H) stamp in the top corner. I masked the butterfly to keep it from stamping; I just wanted the flowers to sort of curve around the words. The flowers were colored with Copic markers (listed below). I kept the rest of the card simple, keeping the patterned paper low key and tying a small bow. Elegant and pretty, I think!

Thank you for the stop today, now make sure you visit the other Design Team members!


Have a great day!
