Crafty Catz Challenge #474 - With Sympathy

Good morning, time for a new Challenge at Crafty Catz. This week it's Billie's turn to host, she's picked a great theme for us, 'Sympathy Cards' one I personally do find a challenge, but sadly these cards are often needed and I find it's always easier to make them at a time when you don't actually need one! as always the theme is optional.

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Morgan's Artworld

and the prize for our lucky winner is

To make my card I coloured the beautiful August Poppy with my trusty copics, cut the image into quarters and rounded the opposite edges of each square with a corner rounder, inked around the edges and attached them to my tent fold card base. I added a stamped sentiment.
Thanks for visiting, don't forget to hop over to Crafty Catz to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have created. Hope to see you there! Remember the theme is optional, so it's easy to play along.

I completely agree - sympathy cards are just too hard to make when you actually need them, so it's ideal to have a few in your stash. I also feel that sympathy cards should be understated and elegant and I think you've achieved that beautifully here. You've done such a beautiful job with the image and your design is gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Morgan's Artworld Open Challenge
