I was inspired by Card Concept Challenge #89 going for a layered clean look using "yellow" as my focal point. Sketch #330 at Freshly Made Sketches worked so well for me to use a new stamp set to make a sympathy card. It's pretty straight forward. I stamped the dahlia on water color paper with staz on and used SU retired water color crayons (Yo Yo Yellow and Barely Banana) with an aqua brush. I also painted SU pearls with a Yellow sharpie. You can't see it very well, but I highlighted the dahlia with a Nuvo Shimmer glitter pen (from Simon Says).
