With Sympathy

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring this weeks Craft Your Passion challenge with the theme of  '3D It   - 3 dimensional creation or decoupaged image'. I do hope you take a look and decide to participate!  I used an outline  image from the  'Holy Land Flowers 1' stamp set . This stamp set contains  outline images and sentiments.   I colored highlighted the flowers using Prismacolor markers. The flowers were made dimensional by cutting out the image and layering segments on top of the original (using foam tape). I added the layered butterflies to give additional depth to the card. I heat embossed the tan cardstock with a floral pattern  and scored the dark brown paper with my score pal.
