Sympathy card

This is a card for Sweet Sunday sketch 250:

I used some Crafter's Companion Bebunni paper for the background, using three strips of washi tape down the right hand side. The washi tape was added to my collection after a visit recently to Hema, a fairly new store in Bromley that sells lots of different things, including some craft items.

I inked the Penny Black letters and flowers stamp with Stazon ultramarine, stamping on to the blue card and matting on to a piece of dark navy.

Unfortunately, this was made as a sympathy card, so I didn't want it to be fussy, so I resisted putting any flowers or other bits and bobs on it, just adding three white pearls.

This is also for:
