With Sympathy

Hello Sweet Friends! It's Monika here today with a sympathy card. I love stamping and heat embossing on vellum, so when I saw the gorgeous flower images in the Floral Greetings clear stamp set, I new I had to make a card with vellum... it is a very easy technique, and looks fabulous.
If you can fussy cut the images and used them as 'embellishments' they even look better! Such a delicate look, don't you think?
I stamped (and heat embossed) the bigger flower again and after fussy cutting it, I adhered it on the base image with dimensional tape. I also stamped three butterflies... they look so wonderful fluttering around.
The background was made with Magenta Nuance light green pigment powder. I just sprinkled the powder on water color cardstock and spritzed it with water. To add a touch of shabby look to my card, I distressed the edges of the water color panel, and after assembling the card, I also added copper micro beads...

The sketch for my card came from CAS(E) this Sketch #208.
Thanks for stopping by,
