With Deepest Sympathy

Woot! Welcome to a new Challenge at Catch The Bug!  This week's challenge is one of everyone's favorites! its Anything Goes! *Cheers*This means you can create any project your heart desires and link it up to our challenge, because, truly, anything goes!  There are prizes from Bugaboo Stamps up for grabs - Just waiting to be won!  What are you waiting for?! Jump on over to Catch The Bug and link up!

Today. I have a sympathy card for your viewing pleasure. My card uses the image, Rainy Day Bears - Rain Rain, by Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. All papers used, are scraps from my stash. I cut various different paper scraps into banners, layered behind the image. I've embellished with pearls and flowers. Gemstones have been used as flower centers. A tiny heart charm hangs from baker's twine, to the top left of the image.  The sentiment is punched with circle punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
