Bloomin' with Beauty Sympathy Card 
Good afternoon,I am back with a Stampin'Up! card,I haven't made one of these in a while.The girls at the gym asked if I would make a sympathy card for them and this is what I came up with.I tend to use Stampin'Up! stamps for these sort of things,as I like the classy elegance of them.........which I think is perfect for these sort of cards.This card was inspired by Teneale Williams,she makes the most gorgeous Stampin'Up! cards,so if you are looking for some inspiration.......then you need to have a look at Teneale's blog.The inspiration for this card came from here. I coloured the flower with my re inkers on watercolour paper, as I wanted it to be the same colour as the cardstock and I didn't have a matching copic colour.I don't like colouring this way and I am not very good at it,so lucky the flower isn't that big.I have also edged the white papers in stickles,just to give a slight sparkle.Its something I wouldn't normally put on a sympathy card,but I wanted a pretty card.
I am sure I told you a few posts ago my youngest was sick,well she is still sick and has been coughing through the night and we have been getting very little sleep.We took her to the doctor yesterday and she has been put on the nebuliser,anyway she had it at 3pm yesterday afternoon and the little bugger was all wired up until 12.30am when she finally feel asleep.Then she woke up at 2 or 3 can't exactly remember,I was half asleep and then I had to try and get her back to bed.So, I have been napping today to catch up on some much needed sleep.Anyway,must go and get her on the nebuliser again..........will be back shortly to see what you have all been up to.Thanks for stopping by.

Gorgeous card Cheryl, sympathy cards are quite difficult for me to make, that image is perfect and I love the colours. Hope your daughter gets some sleep and you do too! ♥

WOW Cheryl - that is just stunningly beautiful - great idea to CASE the fabulous Teneale's work but you've made it your own! This is one of my fave SU sets!
Hope your youngest is feeling better soon - there's sooo much yucky sickness around atm!
Take care and hope you get some rest!

Hi Cheryl
I think you have done a great job with this card, your colouring is great & a sympathy card is not the easiest card to make.. I am sure the girls at the gym will be happy with it.

I so love this card on so many levels Cheryl. You have used prob my fave image from a set I do not possess. So good to see u with an SU image (I can hand the crown back to you oh queen.....LOL). It is a truly beautiful and elegant card...perfect for the occasion.
I am so v v sorry to hear of the health trials in ur family. It is never fun with things like nebulisers. I went thru all of that when my son was 18mths...and u wonder (A) how they keep going...and (B) how YOU keep going. Know that there there is a light a the end of the tunnel. Be well and rest up. ooxx
