Sympathy card

What a beautiful morning, the sun is shining and I've only a few things left to move ready for the builders in the morning. I won some kits from Ooh La La a few weeks ago and eventually got to play with them last night.

The BP's are from Ooh La La Creations Vintage Rose collection and I've overprinted the poem on the top one. Simply finished with three roses which have been distressed with black soot DI.

Challenges entered:
OLLCB - sympathy
Die Cut Dreams - use a poem
Fairy Tale - sympathy card
