With sympathy

I have a couple of boxes of cards as church and it's a sad fact of life that sympathy cards and 'thinking of you' type cards tend to sell quite quickly, so I need to make a few to improve stocks.

The background is designed by Lavinia Stamps for Imagination Stamps. I stamped on to this using one of my favourite stamps, Penny Black's 'sparklers', inked with memento grape jelly, also stamping the corner and the Dovecraft sentiment inked the same. Because the background has a sheen to it, I had to dry the ink with my heat gun and the corner had almost smudged a bit, but I decided I quite liked it as it blended in with the ethereal look of the whole picture.

This is for:

4 crafty chicks 247: sympathy
Penny Black May: trees or nature

Sweet stamps 222: favourite colour (purple)
