Sympathy Card - Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge Distress

Hi, Everyone!
Happy Monday!! Today is Monday's challenge at For today's the  Challenge is Distress. This was alot of fun.  For the first time. I used my Zutter Distrezz - It- All Machine. WOW. Ok. I will be honest. LOL. I have had the machine for two years sitting on my shelf  collecting dust. I love it. I went to town! Oh yeah. Can you tell? LOL. Distress all the way!!
 For my card I  used an digital image by called Skye Panies.  The flowers / leaves on my card are 3D and curled.  I love the way it turned out. Still need a little more practice. Anyway when I first was designing this card. I kept getting the feeling it was going to be a Sympathy Card. Now sidebar. I have never made a Sympathy card at all. This is my  very first. Anyway moving on. When I was almost finish with the card. My dear friend at my job lost her Mother - In-Law. Now I understand why I was getting the feeling Sypathy card.
 This card is for my dear friend.
