A Sympathy Card for Sketch Saturday...


Hello all, how was your weekend? Very hot and muggy here in Virginia. I spent some of mine outside enjoying the day and part of it in my stamp room creating this card. 

I used a retired SU set "Early Spring" , don't you love the brush stroke style of this? Copics were my medium with a background created using distress ink and a stencil. I love the soft fade I got with this one. A Spellbinders nobel rectangle die gave it the lovely frame. A snip of ribbon, a sentiment and gem and we can call this card front done.

My inspiration came from this week's challenge at Sketch Saturday with Sketch #365.


Be sure to stop for a visit to see what the team has designed and play along if you have time.


You can see I added a piece of matching design paper with a punched edge to the inside.

Thanks for the visit, it is so good to be back blogging and sharing my cards....have a great week.

This is such a pretty card. The clean and simple style always works so well for a sympathy card. I love your pretty harlequin motif with these prettily coloured flowers. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Sketch Saturday this week. Hugs, Lesley
