Sorrowful Meadow

Today we had a small service at the Guild Hall in memory of those who lost their lives on the recent recon mission to the Floundering Reef. The four souls that were captured and killed by the Duke of Dies would not be forgotten.

I started this card by stamping the flower using the Unity “Insightful Meadows” kit and embossing it with white embossing powder. This earned me +199 embossing XP points, allowing me to level up! I then created the background with three shades of blue Distress Ink, cleaning off the image with a baby wipe after. I stamped the sentiment using a Unity stamp and added a couple score lines separating the blue side from the white space.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Unity “With Sympathy” kit and then stamped the flower from “Insightful Meadows” again to match the outside.

The envelope was also stamped with the flower to tie everything together.  


This card will share some sympathy with the following challenges:

As we stood in the quiet meadow, a soft wind blowing in the first signs of Spring, I vowed to avenge the lives that were lost, even if it meant destroying the Duke of Dies. The Lady Commander of Copics may be upset at first, but I could not let this monster run amok and kill again.
