Yet another Sympathy Card

Sadly I had to make another Sympathy card -looking for inspiration I checked out the various challenges and found Muse

So I used the colours as my main inspiration - For the card I used my newly acquired Altenew Frosted Garden set .Used TH oxides -Abandoned Coral ,Spiced Marmalade and Pickled Raspberry  for the side panel blending.Flicked some small splashes of water - dabbed off -then added some  small gems .This card was for a very sad long time friend .😢
Thanks for reading - please feel free to comment -good or bad
