Sympathy cards.

Yesterday was the funeral of my Auntie, who passed away at the good old age of 88. 
Uncle Les died last August and Aunty Hilda just didn't wan't to carry on without him.
So they are re-united again, and leave behind 3 sons - my cousins.
I made each one a sympathy card, all with the same images, but in different colours.
(Needless to say I had to make these specially as I didn't have any made in advance
 - which I do try to do!)
So here they are.

Perfect Plum on Very Vanilla

Night of Navy and White

White and Night of Navy

I cut out an acetate template using one of the Floral Frames Framelits dies.
Placed it on top of my 5"x5" card and then stamped the background using En Francais stampset.
I then got a small piece of sponge and teased the excess ink off the acetate around the
border of the template onto the card, giving a nice neat edge.
I then used one of the Flowering Flourishes stamps at the top,
and the "Thinking of You" sentiment from Hopeful thoughts stamp set underneath.
I have to say that I was pleased with the effect and will now make a couple  more
ready for when needed next time - they are never easy to make.

I'd like to enter these in
