Condolence card

Unfortunately I had to make a condolence card today - something none of us want to do but have to now and again.  I decided to use the lovely Marianne Designables cut and emboss - unfortunately it hasn't got a name on it but the code is DS0912 - it always reminds me of an eastern pattern.  I used Anna Marie's double sided white pearl card  which was mounted on some dark purple card (which looks blue in the photo).  I then die cut some tulips using my new Memory Box dies "Dancing Tulips" and the dies that match "Tulip Petals".  These extra petals are a little bit fiddly as they are so small but they give the flowers such extra dimension it's worth it.  I also used their "Willow Dragonfly" which is the smaller of the two dragonfly dies they have.  The sentiment is an Anita's stamp and I used Dusty Concorde DI to stamp it.  The finishing touches are a ribbon and three pearls.

 Thanks for stopping by.
