With Sympathy


Aren't these the worst cards to make, my Mums friend has just died of lung cancer and my mum asked me for a card to send to her husband.



Well I don't have any Sympathy images so this is made from two different stamps, the arch has different flowers in the center so I cut them away and put some Lilies there instead. I have just kept the card clean and simple.





I would like to enter it into the following challenges:-


Crafty Catz - challenge 99 - Ribbons


Stamp Something - Something to say Goodbye


Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes


I ♥ Promarkers - challenge # 82 - Metal ( Ihave used brads hope these count)
Paperplay challenges - week 36 - 2 or more stamped images (I used three different stamps)Allsorts - week 120 - flowers & swirls (I have embossed swirls for the background)



Recipe:-


Stamps - Great Impressions #K47, Judikins 23561, Dovecraft sentiment stamp,


Papers - Pampered Pets by Andrea Jayne,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers


Tools - Swirl embossing folder, cuttlebug, heat gun, embossing powder gold,


Embellishments - brads, stickles, ribbon,


Hope you all have a good weekend and thank you for dropping by my blog.


Happy crafting

  12. Hi Tracy,
    I agree they are the worst kind of card to make, but yours is beautiful despite the sad theme, I think it's the arched window that makes it have a church like feel.
    I also love your elegant lady card :-)
