Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great week. Today I wanted to share a simple sympathy card. Sympathy cards are always the hardest cards for me to make. I don't like to make them too plain but at the same time fancy and complicated isn't always the best choice either. For my card today I decided to go with a fairly simple layout and then add a beautiful Blingz flower. I painted 2 Prima flowers, 1 with Spiced Cider Blingz and the other with Under the Sea. I layered them and added a brad. Nothing too fancy but enough to give the sympathy card a beautiful, elegant look.
The sentiment stamp is from DRS Designs. I paired it up with my favorite Gretel Cosmo Cricket designer paper.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you all have a great day!
