With Sympathy

Hi everyone. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Last night I received a phone call from my best friend to say that her dad had passed away. I will be off to a funeral on Wednesday. Today I retreated to my craft room to make a couple of sympathy cards for her family.

Here is my first card -

 I have used my new SU set here - Serene Silhouettes. To create my background, I inked up an acrylic block, misted it with water and then pressed it to my cardstock. I then used a sponge to smooth out the ink. The sentiment is from the Simply Sketched set by SU.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -

Crafting When We Can - Make your own Background

Here is my 2nd card -

Here I have used stamps and dies from Inspired by Stamping. The rose (coloured with Spectrum Noir markers) is from the Elegant Flower set and the dies are Fancy Labels Dies 1

I would like to enter this into the following challenges -

Thanks so much for looking xx
