With Sympathy

Recently, my hubby's co-worker lost his father so he asked me to make a sympathy card.  Using my new Lattice 1 die by Dee's Distinctively, I made this Asian-themed card.   Also added the bamboo die by Hero Art and butterfly die by C.C. Designs.   Can't forget the flowers right?  The sakuras (Cherry Blossoms) are from Wild Orchid Crafts.   

Using one of the sentiments from a mini clear stamp set by Kaiser Craft, I made my own banner and for additional dimension I put a pop-dot under it to raise the center.  The sentiment is also heat embossed.

Hope your year is off to a great start with lots and lots of crafting getting done.  Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!!
