Clean and Simple Sympathy

The Clean and Simple Challenge on SCS this week was to make a sympathy card. I stamped the image from Autumn Abundance in Burnt Umber ink directly onto the kraft card base and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and the blender pencil. I added some Crystal stickles to the center of the flowers. I added a strip of paper from Autumn Abundance onto a strip of pure poppy cardstock punched with a Fiskars diamond border punch. I then tied some summer sunrise satin ribbon around the cardstock and adhered it to my card. The sentiment is from Birds of a Feather and is stamped in Burnt Umber.

Have a wonderful weekend!
