With Sympathy


Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend, sadly in Scotland we don't generally get this holiday so in my case it was business as usual.

Tonight's card unfortunately is a Sympathy Card as one of Rab's relatives passed away yesterday after a long illness.  I always struggle a bit with making cards like this as it is difficult to find just the right thing.

I've used a decoupage and sentiment set from Papermania's Just to Say range.  The ready made lilac card blank is from an old goody bag and I've used the same colour of pearlised card to mount the decoupaged image onto.  I've kept the rest of it quite simple with white pearlised card embossed using a butterflies folder, ribbon, fancy ribbon bow and pearls to finish.

I wish to enter this card into the following challenges

Moving Along with the Times - Embossing
Crafty Ribbons - #46 Anything Goes With Ribbons
Stamping Sensations - Embossing & Texture
