CAS(E) This Sketch Sympathy

I don't usually get to posting during the day!  I like being home when the kids are at school!  I snuck a few minutes in this morning and headed down to the craft room!  I wanted to get a few cards finished up and get ahead for next week! 

Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card this week (actually, I need two) and I wanted to get those done so they can get into the mail.  The uncle of a friend of mine recently passed away and I want to send my friend and her aunt a card to let them know I'm praying for them.  

I've been feeling rather uncreative lately.  I think sometimes creativity goes in waves!  I started out with the sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch and went from there.  I knew I wanted this card to be mostly vanilla.  I love the look of vanilla on vanilla.  It just seems so clean!  I put some tiny little pearls in the centre of the flowers but unfortunately they don't show up in the picture too well.  It's a grey day here today so there isn't much light shining in the patio door!

I turned to my trusted Field Flowers, some Sahara Sand and Early Espresso Ink and voila!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Stamps: Field Flowers (SU), One from PTI that I can't remember the name of!
Ink: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso
Other: Basic Pearls, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I will be back again (later tonight) with tomorrow's Freshly Made Sketches post!

Have a fabulous Tuesday!
