2 takes on flower card

Hello everyone. Life has been so busy, that although I have squeezed in many early morning or late night sessions to make a card, I have had no time to post. That changes today. I have two cards made very similarly, but have created two different looks by using vellum to soften one of them. Both recipients adored their cards and as you can see one was for a happy occasion and one definitely sad. It is nice to be able to use the same stamps for very different events.

I would like to enter these cards in the following challenge:

Less is More - Colors of your bedroom (I am actually using colours from my daughter's room).

Thanks for stopping in,

Two more sympathy cards . . .

I am having to make too many of this kind of card lately. I don't think I ever have made this many in a year before, never mind a month. These cards were for colleagues who lost a parent. Being pressed for time, I made them almost identical. I just changed the width of the border around the flower. This is another favourite stamp of mine from Penny Black. So soft and pretty. I resisted the urge to add any colour and left it stamped in a soft grey.

Inside of both cards:

Hopefully these are my last sympathy cards for awhile. Thanks for stopping in and God Bless.
