QFTD and Free For All - Sympathy

On Splitcoaststampers today, there is a new Queen for the Day reigning and it is Mothermark. She is really famous for her teapots but I did not need to attempt to case one of those. So, I chose something much easier. This card is also for the SCS Free for All challenge to make a pick-me-up card for someone needing cheer, to get well, etc. I chose to do a sympathy card.

I sponged my clouds using round and oval templates made with Stampin'Up! punches. The cross was from a set of cross stickers I recently bought thinking I may have some use for them. They were all so beautiful and sooooo white. I need color on mine so I inked it with SU Soft Suede and inked the white pearl with the same ink. I glittered and embossed it as well. I stamped the sentiment and cut freehand.

Stamps: My Sentiments Exactly
Paper: Black and white cardstock
Ink: Memento Summer Sky for clouds, StazOn jet black-sentiment, SU Soft Suede
Cross-Sticko dimensional stickers
Clear embossing powder
Bazzill pearl
SU Dazzling Diamonds
