Sympathy and Hydrangea cards

Hello!  My absolute favorite flower is a hydrangea, especially blue varieties.  I used the Hero Arts 'Hydrangea' stamp and plenty of blue Copic markers to create the first card you see.  I hand trimmed the flower, added dimensional tape behind it, and framed it in white.

Next up is an encouragement card for the faithful, who put their trust in the Lord.  I love this verse of Scripture from Romans 12:12.  I surrounded the stamped sentiment from Papertrey Ink with a butterfly frame that I was blessed enough to win on Instagram. (supplies in caption)

The next two cards are sympathies...both featuring botanicals.  Hollyhocks on one (Stampendous) and ferns on the second.  They're simple, and clean, and both use the same sentiment from My Favorite Things 'Essential Sentiments'.

A fairly clean and simple post today!
Thanks for coming by, and God bless you!

ALL are Beautiful! And whenever I think of hydrangeas I think of you! Your coloring is spot on!

Oh, my gosh, the hollyhock and fern cards just blow me away! Love how you did the hollyhock on pink and colored with white pencil. Stunning! The ferns speak peace to me. Gorgeous hydrangea, too. I still have that frame, as well. One of my first ever dies.
