Sympathy Card with Flowers


Today is a solemn day for me, it's a day that I remember the passing of my sister. She passed away two years ago, on this day. Her passing changed me and it changed my family. Last night I created this Sympathy Card with Flowers to commemorate the day. I used the sketch from Charisma Cardz that contains several lovely layers. I used patterned papers that my sister would have loved, and I coloured the sympathy frame stamp with my Copic markers. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to give your loved ones a hug today!
