Sketch Saturday #251
It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from

I always struggle so much with sympathy cards; what layout to use, what image, what words of comfort? But today's sketch leant itself perfectly to my needs and I found an image of poppies, which I always think are perfect for sympathy cards, on line here which I coloured in Copics, using a Letraset Tria for the tiny bits.
You will see from the sketch that it called for two different elements on the top and bottom half of the card but because I wanted to keep my card clean, I opted simply for two different embossing folders and plain white linen card stock. The top folder is a Cuttlebug swirly frame and the bottom folder is Tied Together.
My Stampin Up sentiment was stamped directly on to the image after I had spent over an hour colouring my poppies. I held my breath, used my Stampin Up Stamp-a-majig to line it up and got a perfect print. Phew!
