Sympathy Card #2

Now let me clarify, no one else has passed away.  This sympathy card happens to be one I made in case I should need it in the future.  As much as I do not like having to use these cards, it is just a natural part of life.  Guess it's not a bad thing to be prepared.

This beautiful iris stamp is one I picked up at a stamp store several years ago.  The simpleness of it is what I was first attracted to with this one.  My base card is a retired color from Stampin' Up! called Pink Passion, or was it Passion Pink?  I am not sure right now but I know those 2 words were part of it.  Anyway, I attached a sheer ribbon around the card front, tying it in a not.  That is all the extra I did for this one.  Sometimes, I think simple elegance is the way to go with a card. 

As for my flower, I stamped it with StazOn ink and colored it in using Stampin' Up! markers.  I then used a glue I bought especially for glitter to out line the flowers.  Now you may be wondering how I got the lines so thin.  Well, this glue happened to have a tip you could by for it that allows you to draw extremely thin lines to add glue to.  It gave just a hint of added detail to the flower without going overboard.  The glitter I used is the Dazzling Diamond glitter from SU!.  Then inside simply has "With Deepest Sympathy" stamped on it.  I made sure to leave enough room so I could write a special note.
I do realize this post is kind of short.  I am hoping to have more time to blog tomorrow.  Honestly, I suffer from migraines and I have a big one today.  So now I am going to go take my medicine and lay down.  Thanks for dropping by today and I will see you tomorrow.
