Sympathy Wreath

Hello there! Today, I’m sharing my (late) DT inspiration for the current ATG challenge at Creative Fingers. We are being sponsored by the generous Jan’s Digi Stamps, who kindly provided the DT images to work with. I chose the Fall Cotton Wreath with the sympathy sentiment (there’s a number of sentiments in the set, to make this a super versatile set!) I colored this up with my Copics, and admittedly struggled a bit, as I printed it up smaller than was smart!

I cut the image out with a die with a pretty edge, then rummaged through my paper stash, trying to decide on what to do!! Since I like to keep my sympathy cards quite simple, all the printed papers that I tried were just too fussy for what i wanted. I decided on a plain brown cardstock, with some pops of blue to match the bow in the image. I did a little angular cut out to add a bit of interest without complicating the card design. Some square gems gave the project a bit of understated sparkle.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
