My supply of sympathy cards is always short so when I saw Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge #39, I was happy to see it was to make such a card. Thanks, Joanne.
Stampin'Sisters in Christ challenge #73 was given by Linda Lucas to do a vintage style card/project
Simon Says Stamp Challenge-Bingo-- What a fun challenge using the Bingo board shown below:
My card is using a flower from Mark's Finest Papers Apples and Camellia stamp set. I stamped twice, cut out, and glued the two together for some depth. I used a gold leafing pen to go around the edges.
The piece I embossed my sentiment on is a Spellbinders Pierceabilities die and I love it. I cut out the die, pierced, and sponged the heart while still in the die.
I added my lace, crinkled ribbon, a pearl and it is all finished.
