I'm up on the Linnie Blooms blog today sharing a sympathy card for a sweet co-worker who recently lost her mom.

I used on of the Linnie Blooms canvas shapes and inked it up with Tim Holtz Broken China and Sapphire distress inks.  I was going to try to make a flower out of it.....but I decided instead to cut it out to add a "frame" around the image (which is from Unity Stamp Company {may hope sustain you}).  I love the extra texture that the canvas brings to my cards.  The image is colored with Tim Holtz distress watercolors, and the patterned paper is from Carta Bella So Noted.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Before you go, be sure to check out:
