This morning I completed a sympathy card for my best friend Wendy whose mother recently passed. She was a very special lady - an English War bride, actively involved with the Veterans and Boys Scouts Canada.
I used the sketch for the current challenge at Eat, Sleep, Stamp and turned it lengthwise.
All printed papers used are from K&Co "Life's Journey". On the pink flowered, Spellbinders Tear Drop Circle layer I spritzed Perfect Pearl Mist Biscotti, and sponged edges with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink. This is layered with a circle from the same background paper, and a cream tag cut from Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two, sponged with Tea Dye. The beige/teal rectangle layer is embossed with Cuttlebug Damask folder and edged with Tea Dye. Blue background rose flowered layer is edged with Tim Holtz Iced Spruce distress ink. Verse is from a sympathy set by "My Sentiments Exactly".
Two different ribbons - cream faux silk and vintage lace, along with a pink rose and greenery (Martha Stewart punch) and three cream pearls completes the card.
