None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Another with sympathy

I needed to restock my card box so I made another sympathy card.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
The Outlawz Greeting Card Challenge - The Outlawz Challenges
TTCRD July 30 - August 5 Challenge - TTCRD




Supplies:
Card stock: Stampin Up!
Honeycomb Die: Paper Trey Ink
Label punches: Stampin Up!
Sentiment: Stampin Up!
Image: Rubber Stampede
Ribbon, Pearls and Glitter: Stash

The flower was stamped then colored with water color pencils and a blender pen.
Several of the smaller flowers are cut out and popped up on dimensionals'
pearls were added to the center of the popped up flowers, glitter was added to the center of the rest.\

Oh wow! I love the coloring of this card. Can you tell me the name of the blender pen and where you got it? I'd really love to try my hand at coloring images, but Copics are not in my budget right now.

And thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

Warmest Regards--
