Today, just a quick post. This sympathy card was made using a new stamp I just got last week, the one with the larger roses. It is from SweetStamps, called "Vertical Roses" and I bought it a their retail store knowing it would match their other rose stamps (which I have 2 or 3 of). I like that it is a larger size of the same roses so I can get a variety of different effects with it. Here I used the small stamp to make my own background paper.

The sentiment stamp is also from SweetStamps. I stamped the images and sentiment in dark brown ink, TH Distress Ink "Walnut Stain". The flowers and leaves are colored with Memento markers and Spectrum Noir markers, then added a touch of Stickles "Star Dust". I used my new Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker too. 
Cardstock, paper, ribbons...all from my stash.

This is beautiful, Sandie. Although it's never a fun time when we need to make a sympathy card, it's always such a blessing to the recipient to know they're loved and thought of during a difficult time. I have no doubt that this beautiful card will be a blessing and comfort. Thanks for stopping by to share your card with us in this week's challenge. I always LOVE seeing your sweet creations.
God bless you!
