My favorite technique with the Card Word Puzzle flowers is to stamp multiple times and layer the flower.  I added shading with a marker to add more depth to the flower.

  14. Beautiful card, I especially like the way you did your flower. I don't think of yellow for a sympathy card ('cause I don't usually do ANYthing with yellow), but it's jut lovely!
    Cheers, Karen
