Poppy Sympathy

Hello friends,
I'm back with another sympathy card for a friend who lost her dad.
Here it is:

I used MFT's Pretty Poppies stamp set & Dienamics (luuuuv this set!) The background is embossed using...wait for it... an Anna Griffin folder! Yes, probably my fav so far. It's called Poppies & it's a beauty! I embossed the white cs Fishtail Flag with T!m's Rays folder. I wanted it to look like rays pointing up to heaven. The colors used are Wild Wasabi & Baja Breeze. I luv that color- so I'm sad to see it on the retired list.

Here's a peek at the innies:
The sentiment is from PTI's Blooming Button Bits.

I hope my dear friend finds some comfort in this card & that I won't need to make another sympathy card for a long time.

I used the current sketch at Cardabilities:

Thanks so much for peeking today. Two more sleeps & the weekend will be here! Yay!
