Sympathy card flowers and vine

I made this card especially for a family members inlaw who just passed away.   I used Unity stamps from the Bunches of Love sentiment kit which I absolutely adore, and colored the images with a variety of markers and also Stickles glitter glue.  You can see a close-up of the sentiment where I painted a little Smooch Glitz.

The background was blotted with yellow ink and so are the edges of the folded doily.  I hand cut leaves and the other embellishments and added some ribbon and fiber.  I was worried that it was all a bit much but a couple fellow crafters reassured me that this card felt like a "warm hug".  I really hope so.

Supplies:  American Crafts Sunflower ink, The Paper Studio fringe fibers, AC gold adhesive ribbon, K & Company gemstones,  craft ribbon,  3" circle punch, Smooch Glitz Frost accent ink, Bic Mark-it markers fine point, Permapaque Metallic markers, Stickles yellow and Tropical tangerine glitter glue
