With Sympathy ....

... Good afternoon! It's beginning to look like spring is arriving at last, while it's a bit cool, we do have bright sunshine and the birds are singing so loudly. Unexpectedly, I had to make a sympathy card today. It's always so much easier to make them and have a few in my stash, than to make as needed. This is what I made:

Stamps: My Favourite Things - Grand Peaceful Wildflowers
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Grey Flannel; Brilliance - Starlite Silver
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Smoky Slate; SU DP - Basic Grey

I've used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#232 for the layout, and I'm also playing along with Addicted to Stamps & More! - ATSM#189 as it's CAS. I stamped the tall grass with a second impression in silver and then stamped the flowers in grey and black on top. I edged the card with a silver metallic marker and layered it on pale grey card, and then attached the whole lot to the card base. I cut a piece of design paper attached it to the card, stamped the sentiment on white card and adhered it above the DP. On the inside I cut a mat of pale grey and on the white panel stamped a flower in grey and added a sentiment.

It's nice getting back into playing along with challenges, and I'm so pleased to be able to join ATSM this week - it's been ages! That's all for now, I've still got lots of bits to sort out in the house. I am determined to get rid of all the packing boxes by the end of next week. See you tomorrow!
