Sympathy Poppies

Hello everyone,

I got the rest of my sympathy cards crafted last night but didn't manage to get them posted. These two cards are for a colleague who lost her mother last week. This colleague is a colourful person. She always wears eclectic jewelry and her office is chock-a-block full of plants and colourful trinkets. Needless to say, I made these sympathy cards more bright and cheerful than usual because it was much more suited to the wonderful woman receiving them.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight textured with Sizzix Small Dots. The patterned layer is DCWV Green Stack. The image, Stampendous Poppy Trio, is stamped on Whisper White and coloured with Martha Stewart Opaque Spring Colour markers, Adirondack Red Pepper marker and Bic Rambunctious Red. It is sponged with Daffodil Delight ink and layered on a scrap of Basic Black. The sentiment is Verve Forever In Our Hearts. The embellishments are Peggy's Pretties.

The card base is Recollections. The image, stamped on Whisper White and layered on a scrap of red of unknown origin and a piece of Stampin' Up Handsome Hunter, is Stampendous Poppy Stems. The image is coloured with Bic's Rambunctious Red. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Warmest Regards. The embellishments are Crafts Gem Chic.

I really love both these cards. They are wonderfully different and so suited to my colleague. I know she'll appreciate them.

Please enjoy these cards and come back to SPI again soon.
