Stained Glass Sympathy

I stampers, I had cut out several of these cards and had several to make and mail out this week.  Unfortuntely I've needed a lot of sympathy cards lately.  The Stained Glass Rounds from Sparkle N Sprinkle is one of the sets I always grab for when I need a sympathy and since it was round it fit the card perfect.  I kept the rest of the card pretty simple. I colored with Copics and then covered it with Versamark and Sparkle Embossing Powder.  They sentiment was embossed with Moss Embossing Powder.
My husband and I are getting ready to go down to Flamingo, in the Everglades this weekend.  I'm looking forward to taking some good nature photos,  so I will share some of those pictures with you next week. 
But until then I went out today to photograph this Kapok tree that is one of my favorite blooming trees because it blooms so early.  

Hope you have a beautiful day:)

Blooming trees already! The crocus keep on getting bombarded with snow, and those are my first signs of spring! The pictures are beautiful and so is the card - unfortunately I also need some sympathy cards. TFS

That stamp is perfect for that style card!
And what beautiful blossoms on the tree! I'm so jealous - it's still so gray & "winter" here. Thanks for sharing a bit of your sunshine with us Jill!
