Sympathy Card

Hi Friends,

Here is a sympathy card I made using a water colour painting of swans. The beginner painting tutorial is from Lindsay, The Frugal Crafter, and can be found here. I embossed over the painting and the swans were barely discernible so I went over their outlines with a marker.

Verse is by Tickell Expressions
Sentiment by AJ's Digi Shoppe
And here is the inside verse for you.

Blessing hugs,
Teresa

This is beautifully painted and designed! Love the embossing--gives it great added texture, as do the crocheted flower, twine, and trim. Very sweet card for a difficult occasion! :^)
Hugs, Penny
