Blackberry Blooms Sympathy Card

This Blackberry Blooms Sympathy Card was made for a distant cousin who recently lost her brother. Although I haven't seen her in years I wanted to send her a card to let her know she is in my thoughts. Sometimes it's the small unexpected things that help during a difficult time.                                    

I kept the card really simple and used the new hostess stamp set called Bloom with Hope that will be coming out in the new Stampin' Up! catalog on June 1st. The flowers were colored using a blender pen and Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow inks from the 2014-2016 in colors. I dry embossed the mossy meadow cardstock strip and added a stamped bitty butterfly for detail. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

This Blackberry Blooms Sympathy Card is entered into the following challenges:
