Silhouette sympathy card

Hi everyone! I combined a few challenges today with this sympathy card. It's another sympathy card for the Just Us Girls word challenge.

Flower silhouette and sentiment are from My Favorite Things. The Dragonfly is from Impression Obsession that I've surgically altered.

I used jewel toned water colors to create the back ground based upon the Less Is More color challengeThe Friday Mashup! also wanted some color in the back ground to go with a silhouette. Done on both accounts.

I added three black rhinestones below the sentiment to add a bit of interest and dimension. The panel is cut out with the largest stitched rectangle die from MFT. I ended up layering it in black so that it would stand out a bit more on the white card base. It's also popped up with foam tape.

That's it for today. Off to finish the Cinderella chores. Thanks for stopping by!
