Floral sympathy

Hi Everyone, a sympathy card today, thankfully not because I need one, but want one for my "ready for box!"  Anyhow, I am in the digi colouring mode, so went to see what I could do and thought a different style and found this in my files from Create with TLC, the sentiment was also right next to it in my files, so that's what I went with.

I laid it all out in PS using the sketch from Outlawz, then coloured the flowers, I couldn't find paper to match the colours I had used! why do I do that? so I added overlays onto the colours of the strips. printed it out and layered the pieces. Added the die cuts and some Borealis gems. I die cut the image and black card to layer it and to surround the background..

Image and sentiment Create with TLC.
Die cuts Tattered Lace.
Papers background Overlay MeloVrijhof  at Pixelscrapper
first strip overlay Snickerdoodles
second strip overlay Sheila Reid at Pixelscrapper
3rd strip overlay Snickerdoodles
