With Sympathy

It's always hard to create a sympathy card.  You don't want it to be too bright, too dark, too whimsical or too..well whatever.  So as I found myself  this past week in need of one for a friend I took inspiration from the His and Hers class that I am taking right now and created this:
I used an older PTI set - Floral Frenzy combined with Distress Inks on good quality watercolor paper.  I stamped my images, then sprayed a few light mists of water combined with Perfect Pearls powder to create a subtle watercolor effect.  
I added my sentiment and coordinating dots after my main piece was dry and also added the center pearls at the same time.  I matted my main layer using MFT cardstock in Steel Grey.  I added both layers to a plain white notecard using foam adhesive.
I mailed this off in the hopes that it might bring a bit of sunshine to my friend in need.
