Thinking of you...Sympathy Card

I needed a card to send to a friend who just lost his brother. So, okay, this is a pretty feminine card for a guy, but I know his wife will appreciate the card. I had the image already colored, and since I needed the card TODAY, I thought I would generate an appropriate sentiment on the inside.

So, a short post, here is my card...

A close-up of how I colored this lovely image from Saturated Canary called Canary Love. I made the bird to be a dove.

A side view of the card with a peek to the inside...

Here is the sentiment I generated on the computer...

And the salutation panel...

Finally here is the artistic, skew-if look at the card...

The dp and cardstock is all from my stash, the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, bow/twine on the inside is from my stash as is the charm. The image is colored with Copic markers and shaded with Distress Ink.

I have entered this card into the Saturated Canary Challenge for this two weeks.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit much appreciated!

Blessings and hugs,
