With Sympathy | Thinking of you

Sadly, I have been in need of two sympathy cards this past week .... both for some very dear school friends :(

My primary school friend Debbie lost her Mother-in-Law just before Mother's Day, and one of my High School friends, Jill, lost her Mum on Tuesday after Mother's Day.

With Sympathy

Thinking of you

I had been having a tidy up and came across a 6" paper stack that came free with a magazine, and that started me on my colour theme - soft teals and oranges.

I had also just purchased some Just Rite stamps and had a lovely flower that matched the papers beautifully! The flower was stamped on the back of some embossed DP which give just a hint of texture.

Then I came across the most perfect sketch at a CAS #241 - but as I worked with the layout, I decided to make it square

I would like to submit these cards to the following challenges:
CAS #241 - sketch
CAS-Fridays #101 - stamp on DP
CASology #44 - Bloom
JustRite - colour theme: orange, teal and cream/beige

I needed a card for my Great Nephew, Riley's 3rd Birthday - it took a little while for motivation to hit, but when it did .......... I was on a roll!


I really enjoyed making this card ;-)

I printed this gorgeous image on white cardstock three times, hand cut out and layered various elements, highlighting with Kindy Glitz, gold stickers sentiment and stars have also been used.  I went through my stash and found the most perfect backing papers ;-)  Riley's name I created in Photoshop (using some newfound skills from my TAFE course, and cut out with Spellbinder dies and Cuttlebug.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Cards for Men #9 - Animals (bears are animals, right ;-))
Creative Card Crew - Bling
Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes
abc Challenge - M - Make it sparkle

Looks like the "Anything Goes' challenge was popular - there were 84 entries!  Once again, very difficult for the DT to pick a favourite!
