CAS sympathy

Having taken on a few design team positions recently, I've been crafting away in preparation for future challenges, but haven't made so many other cards in between. As I have some charity sales coming up quite soon I need to make some other cards. Sadly, I can never make enough sympathy cards - that slot is empty in the box I have at church and I haven't got any left at home.

This is a clean and simple one, made with a ready shaped card blank that has a very light green shaded background. I inked the La Blanche foam stamp with memento cottage ivy and coloured the centre and petals of the daisy with copics. The sentiment stamp is a Dovecraft one that I picked up for 50p at The Works.

Use of the daisy stamp inspired by the photo for Inkspirational 37:
