Lilly Sympathy Cross

Here's another set of DRS Designs newest stamps!  This Lily Sympathy Cross (L314) and the One Line Sorry For Your Loss Sentiment (D317) are brand new!
I love this cross image..it's simply beautiful.  Yes, it's titled for sympathy, but I'm anxious to use it for a different type of card.  Wouldn't it make a beautiful Easter card as well??  I'll be keeping that thought in my back pocket for future use.   

I kept this card fairly simple, as I think most sympathy cards should be on the simpler side and I didn't want to take away from the image itself.
I used my Copic Markers to color in the cross and then I lightly painted the lillies with Opal Shimmerz to give them a subtle sheen look.  I masked the cross and the edges around the image so that I could sponge blue ink for the background.  My Heart EK Success border punch and some sheer blue ribbon finished this card off nicely. 

Just a reminder...don't forget about DRS Designs Sketch Challenge currently underway.  You could win 6 FREE stamps just for playing along! See all the details and link your card up HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
