Gladiolus Sympathy

I find that I create sympathy cards on an as needed basis.  When I needed one for a wonderful family from my church, I began right away.  I grabbed my gladiolus stamp, some Copics, and this sweet sentiment.  
It says, "Know that you are surrounded by caring thoughts and loving prayers."  After masking off the sentiment, I added Copic lines to define it, and then stamped the flowers on top.  (This was a MIM technique a few weeks ago.)
I used a clear Spica glitter pen on the yellow areas for a pretty shimmer and Glossy Accents on the orange stamens.  Each one has a nice dollop of glossy height.  The butterfly was stamped from Beautiful Butterflies set, cut out, and glued only on its center so the wings lift up slightly. 
Thanks for stopping by!
