Razzleberry Sympathy

Good morning ~

It's never nice to have to make a sympathy card, so I made this one a little brighter than normal in an attempt to avoid the usual subdued colours and add a smidge of brightness to a very difficult and sad time.

The old top note has been at work again lol. I've used Vintage Vogue - again, and stamped my images numerous times then 'popped' them up on top of each other, adding little pearls to the centres of each flower. I put crystal effects on the large flower so that the petals would 'stand up' on their own and it worked perfectly.

As you can see my photography skills have not improved at all. BFF just sent me a link to making your own light box so will go off and investigate that shortly. Let's hope it brings some 'light' to my currently dark pics.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting :o)
