CAS-ual Fridays Peace and Comfort

I hope life is treating you good. Another reminder to enjoy every single day. Today I made a sympathy card. This is the one type of card that I NEVER make. I use my crafting as a sweet escape and always try to fill it with "happy" and bright colors. This one is for a special friend and a store bought card just isn't going to cut it. 
I stamped a white card stock panel with florals from the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Peace and Comfort stamp set in shades of blue. I only stamped around the edges of the panel because my sentiment panel covers the center of the card.. This saved some worry and planning since I don't have to worry about how the flower print will come together in the center.
The images are all double stamped - I used lighter colors for the solid image, and a darker shade of ink for the detail image.  If you look close you'll see I added some dots with a Copic Marker to fill the empty areas.  This adds more color and completes the design.
I stamped the sentiment in colored ink - something I should do more often. I really like the way it matches the background stamping.
I know that a hand made card will let my friend know that she means the world to me and that my heart is with her.
