Sympathy card

It has been a while since I have posted. I am TRYING to get my stamp room under control. The task is bigger than I am.
At the same time, I have been starting on various cards - not finishing any except for this sympathy card.
Unfortunately, a person who I know through two groups had her sister pass away. Very sad.
So I wanted to make her something because believe me when I tell you she is one special lady!
I used 110# paper by Neenah so that the embossing would really stick out. I used the cuttlebug folders, Flower Fantasy and Swiss Dots. I did one on top and one on the bottom. Then I used my Scor Pal to score twice after each one. I wanted something simple yet elegant, so I chose the calla lily to be my image. It is colored with colored pencils and Gamsol. I used nestabilities to cut out the scalloped circle and the the smaller circle. I used Memento ink to sponge the scalloped circle. I then used a darker purple Memento ink to edge the smaller circle and the outer edge of the card.
I hope you like it.
I will be posting again soon, maybe tomorrow, because I have a swap to do that is a card with a bookmark built in. So be sure to check in soon.
