Butterfly sympathy card

A few days ago I happened to see a friend who purchases a lot of my cards.  She bought all of the sympathy cards I had left - so now I need to fill that void.
To color this Our Daily Bread image I used a technique I have gotten away from - I loaded my aqua pen directly from water color pencils.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The DP is by Anna Griffen - from my hoarded stash - time to cut into some of those pieces!  The butterfly embossing folder is by Darice; circle dies by Spellbinder.  You may purchase the Faith set (ODB) at classy cards.

  4. Hi Dorothy...feels funny typing that as it is my name too lol. I have the same thing happen with any sympathy card that I make...they are gone straight away. I guess that is one of the few things that most people still give a card for maybe. A beautiful design.
