Friends and Sympathy (11/4/13)

Good Monday morning!  I'm back with another Friends of Speedy TV challenge!  This week's challenge is to make a sympathy card.  I'm sure I don't have to tell you that it is always a good idea to make one when you don't need one.  Today, I wanted something soft.  I got out my watercolor crayons and my water spritzing bottle.  I colored up the flower image with my crayons and stamped the blooms around the top and left edges.  After they dried a bit, I stamped my sentiments.  I partially matted the bottom and right edges and sponged the other edges for just a bit of definition.  Finally, I popped the whole thing up. 
 
Let's not forget that Mark's Finest Papers offers a frees stamp set to one lucky participant.  This week is the fabulous Dragonflies set! I hope you can play along and maybe win this gem!
Thanks for stopping by!
