Dahlia Sympathy Card

I have a sympathy card today. Lately, I've needed quite a few of these. This is one of those types of cards we should always have on hand, just in case. I like to use flowers for these as I think they're a beautiful symbol that goes along with a warm thought or prayer for the recipient during a hard time. 

I chose the dahlia from the Sheena's A Little Bit Floral-Dahlia. I colored it in using my Spectrum Noir markers (CT1, CT2, CT3, CT4, and GB6). The sentiment is from Crisalis Classics-The Rehearsal which I just simply stamped on white, punched out with a circle punch and colored with the colors I used in the flower with the Spectrum Noirs.

I fussy cut the dahlia, quartered a doily, and used some perfect paper I had in my stash for behind the flower talking about family and the importance of it, and assembled it all. 

Thanks for visiting! Check out Crafter's Companion today!
