Sunflower Sympathies

Good afternoon friends!
I have kind of gotten away from Christmas cards a bit, too give you all a break, lol. I made my first every sympathy card and thought I would share it with you today. The image is by Gingerloft Digi Stamps and can be purchased from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. It is a very pretty image and I totally enjoyed colouring it.
Here is today's card:
