Unusual Sympathy Card

I made a card for a SCS cardmaker that is such a nice person- not only inspirational, but most encouraging. She also makes gorgeous Asian cards. She has recently lost her husband, so I made her this card:

 I was a bit late- I seem to do alot of that lately.....  But, had to send a card.  I played with a stamp I bought at a garage sale which I thought looked like water (Stampscapes) and a Koi die by Cheery Lynn Designs. I had a shimmery orange scrap that was screaming to be used. I added a few highlights with a white paint pen.

 Hoping you are having a fabulous day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous koi fish Shelly, and love the colours. Might be just me being a bit strange, but can't help but think the stampscapes water stamp would look better stamped twice in horizontal position rather than vertical. You may know but in case you don't when you multiple stamp stampscapes you just overlap them slightly to hide join, it's how Kevin has demoed his stamps.
