Sympathy card

Just a quick post to show a thinking of you card that I have made for a friend recently. I decided to keep this very simple and used one of the images from the Blooming Button Bits set from Papertrey Ink. I stamped this onto some Spring Rain cardstock in Versamark and then clear embossed it. I stamped the flower images from Beautiful Blooms 2 onto white cardstock and embossed them with white embossing powder before cutting them out. Silver rhinestones were added to the centres. I scallop edged my base and the bottom of the Spring Rain layer, tying a white ribbon just below the image. Finally I stamped my sentiment in Smokey Shadow ink using the Acacia set from AnnaBelle Stamps.

I stamped my sentiment on the inside again with Smokey Shadow ink with a sentiment form Ballerina Rose.

That's it - short and sweet! I will be back tomorrow with my card for Friday's CSAYL challenge and over the next couple of days will post my Colour Create card - missed the deadline this week, but determined to get it done!
