Fortunately I'm not needing a sympathy card, but I like to keep them on hand for that last minute need. I created this card with four different challenges in mind:
Free for All - field of flowers theme (use at least 4 flowers)
Colour Q - Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Going Gray, Certainly Celery
CAS-ual Fridays - banners and flags
I've had this PTI Larger than Life stamp set with coordinating dies for a couple of months and never got it inky until now! About time I remedy that problem - lol! Totally LOVE these colors and also loved this layout!
The upper portion of the background was dry embossed using the herringbone folder by Cuttlebug. I kept wanting to add random pearls or a bow and decided that less was more for a sympathy card.
STAMPS: Larger than Life (PTI), Borderline (Verve) - sentiment.
PAPER: Island Indigo (SU), Neenah Solar White, White (PTI).
INK: Basic Gray, Going Gray, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, Island Indigo.
ACCESSORIES: Herringbone EF, Framed Tags One by Spellbinders, Pennant trim die by Verve, Soft Sky ribbon by SU, Larger than Life dies by PTI.
Some people are lamenting the fact that it's been raining all day. Me? It gives me an excuse for more time in my stamp room! :-) Thanks for stopping by...I always appreciate reading your comments!
