Sympathy Card

Morning everyone, well this afternoon will be full of tears for me I am sure. I am attending a funeral for one of my best friends Dad. This is my first ever Sympathy card that I have made. Normally I just can't create them and end up at the newsagents. This time however I saw a wonderful card at "The Lucky Clucker". Also, purposely, for me I have also set the weekly challenge at Craftmad as 'White with a hint of colour'.

I used a blank pre-scored white card from Blue Edge Crafts. Using my Octagon nestabilities and Ikki's wonderful tutorial I embossed the frame on the front. I then used a brass frame and my embossing stylus to dry emboss the flower image. Added the bow. Printed the greeting on my computer and added silver sticker borders from the Sticker Store.
