Sympathy cards

I'm in need of sympathy cards again and since this set will go to the same families as my last post on cards, I made a new set.

Thankfully, after browsing the internet this morning, I was inspired by something I saw (I only wish I can remember where I saw it, just to show you where I started) and proceeded to make my own version. I used the big rose from the Card Word Puzzle stamp set in Gray Flannel ink and the sentiment is from Card Chatter - Sympathy in Black ink. I added a little bit of Sparkle but because I'm mailing them, I didn't do too much else.

I tried to take a picture of the edges, but couldn't get it to show up better, but I ran the edges of the Colonial White card stock through a gold metallic ink pad (non-CTMH). I think next time I will use a silver metallic ink instead because in person the gold edges looks not right with the silver of the Sparkles.
