Sympathy card Using CTMH Hello Lovely Paper

Hello friends!  It is still raining here in Southern CA.  Can you believe it?  I think we might get out of the drought; if we aren't already.   I know some of our lakes were completely dry for several years.  So sad.  I hope they are filling back up by now.  

I decided I needed to create with Imagine That Digis by Kris; so I decided to create a Sympathy card.  I never seem to have them when I need them.  I need to get several made.  I love the digis that Kris creates; especially the colored ones.  I don't always feel like coloring and she has colored digis in most of her digi sets.  

I chose to use Pretty Petunias; which has 22 images in one digi set.  I love this image and have used the one in the frame previously.  There is always so many choices in her digi sets; that you will love them too.  

I love my new CTMH Hello Lovely paper pack and both of these papers are from that pack.  I love the soft pastels; which fit perfectly with this colored image.

Have a blessed week.
