Cross and Blossoms

Another sympathy card needed for a wonderful friend of mine. I don't mind admitting that although the finished card may not look difficult, I struggled badly with it. The image I knew I had to use but as I wanted to keep it simple but effective and without embellishments, it took me a few hours of trying different papers etc before I ended up with the card you see.

It's still raining here and goodness knows when we'll be able to get a mower on the yard. Oh well, better than drought.
Enjoy the rest of your day everyone.

That image is amazing. And when I clicked on it I had a better look at the paper which is so elegant and understated. . . perfect.
