With Sympathy

Good Morning!  I am super excited to be back with another DT creation for the new challenge over at Creative Knockouts!  Our sponsor for Creative Knockouts this week is Dilly Beans Stamps, they have many cool digis!

We are on Challenge #19 - Buttons, Buttons, Whose Got The Buttons!
Follow on Facebook!

I am using an image called Doodle Flower 1 #541 there are just so many possibilities for color combos for this.  I chose to use colors that are similar but would love to try this with reds, orange and yellows.  As I am putting my card on I realized that I have made another almost all white card again.  I promise next time you will see more colorful papers.  The flower is my main image for this sympathy card.  This card is for the staff at my kids elementary school they use to go too.  On boxing day they lost a member of their staff who has worked there for many, many years.  This card is for the staff as this teacher was a very special person who left an incredible mark on all of her kindergarten students over the years.  She was a very unique person and so is this flower so I wanted it to be the highlight of my card.  I couldn't wait to break out the buttons as, I thought they were an added touch to the flower.
