Charisma cardz challenge #45 – DT card

Morning everyone, I hope you are all having a good week so far, I can’t believe it is Thursday already, where is the time going?  I’m here today to share my DT card for this week’s charisma cardz challenge.  This week our theme has been set by Leah and she has chosen “sympathy”.  Unfortunately I needed a card for my hubby’s friend who’s father sadly passed away recently so I decided to make my card in manly colours, even though I had a floral image.   Here is my card:

I used a freebie digital image from Just Inklined called peony 2 available at Imag-e-nation (although I don’t think it’s available as a freebie any longer). 

We have two sponsors this week, firstly we have soft pencil who are offering a $15.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

Our second sponsor is pizzazz aplenty and they are offering one lucky winner this amazing prize:
