With Sympathy

Today, I have a new card for you, featuring a new image by Stamping Dragon Designs. Awhile back, I had asked Janette to create an image for me, for making a sympathy card. She created two fabulous images for me. This is the first one, and my favorite of the two. I think this image is absolutely gorgeous. If you're looking for a nice image for making sympathy cards, this image is perfect! You can find this image, as well as many others in the Stamping Dragon Designs store.

The image is colored with Promarkers and matted onto green cardstock, to bring out the green in the images. I've used some pretty peach honeycomb patterned Dp and some textured cardstock. The sheer ribbon from my stash makes a pretty double bow. The sentiment is from the Stampin Up set, teeny tiny wishes, and punched with the word window and modern label punches. The sentiment is pop dotted for dimension. My card fits the sketch at Papertake Weekly.

Often times, I have an idea, design or "look" in my head that I want to achieve, and it doesn't always come out the way I envision it. This time, I think I pulled it off. I went for the "simply elegant" look, and I'm very please with how it turned out.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
