Sympathy Card for a Crafting Friend

Hello, friends!  I just wanted to share a card I made for the sweet Lisa Spangler when her grandmother passed away.  I was happy to hear (at Lisa's blog) that so many of her crafting friends sent her cards of sympathy and encouragement; this actually does not suprise me at all.  She actually posted pictures of all the cards she received here and they are all truly beautiful.
I made this card for Lisa using the Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design background in Soft Vanilla shadow ink.  I stamped the Branchy Topiary by Memory Box after inking it up with markers.  Finally, I paper-pieced the flower pot and added sage Ultra Fine Flower Soft and a few pearls, then finished it off with a small rafia bow.  The sentiment is from the versatile Hero Arts All Occasion Messages set.   

Materials Used:  Memory Box (D1346) Branch Topiary; Hero Arts (CL272) All Occasion Messages,
(CG245) Classic Fabric Design; Marvy markers; Ultra Fine Flower Soft sage; pearls; raffia; patterned paper;
black ink; Soft Vanilla shadow ink

Thanks for stopping by,
