The Craft's Meow - Hope Blooms

Today, I have a sympathy card to share.  I created it for my friend Karen, her dad passed away suddenly Monday.  The image and sentiment are from The Craft's Meow - Hope Blooms.  The papers are TAC "Catelynne" available at RRD.
I stamped the flower on the green patterned paper with Memento ink and then added come copic marker, YG95, YG97.  The petals were stamped on X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copics R32, R35, R37. The colored image was cut out and added to the green cardstock.  The Kraft cardstock is from PTI.
I really liked the design of this card, the sentiment could be anything, so I made a Birthday Card too for a friend at church. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from Biblical Impressions.
