African Violet sympathy card

African Violet sympathy card, by Paperesse.

This sympathy card features a free digital stamp and sentiment download from Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.

The paper is Tactile Studio Provincial digital paper pack. This is an appropriately sober pack for this type of card, but lest you think digital papers are simply for cards, you can see where this same digital paper pack has been used to alter a picture frame.

Embellishments were kept simple with a little ribbon and pearls.

  1. Ms. Shani - this is beautiful! That combo of papers is a stunning framework of nine layers that makes this card so elegant & [your word] somber! Your coloring of the simple image is so beautifully done. I love the little small vein details, not found on the original image, that you have added to the petals and leaves! Thank you for the inspiration my friend!

  2. Gorgeous card. The rich, regal colors of the papers are striking. And, I love african violets.

  3. Such a beautiful card! Your violets are gorgeous!!

    Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week!

  6. Whaouuuu, la fleur est si bien coloriée qu'on dirait que tu l'as découpé d'un livre, chapeau Shani!!! J'espère qu'un jour je pourrai colorier comme toi!!
    Gros bisous mon amie!
