More sparklers for sympathy

I quite often get asked to make sympathy cards and sometimes am asked to use the Penny Black sparklers stamp, which I've done on this card - inking with memento grape jelly (a lovely purple colour) and I shadow stamped just the seed heads again at the top. I stamped the Hobbycraft sentiment stamp on a piece of card and distressed the edges with dusty concord distress ink to tone with the distressing I did around the edge of the card. The ready made card blank front was mounted on to a textured lilac card base.

This is for:
