With Sympathy





For some reason, I really felt like the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #146 would work well for a sympathy card, so that is the direction I went this week.


I used Harvest Berries stamps and dies in Scarlet Jewel ink with a sentiment from Reverse Confetti.



I made one more sympathy card, this time using the Branching Out die, a sentiment from Avery Elle and Ocean Tides paper.


I do like to keep a stock of sympathy cards on hand, so these will be going into my stash, and I hope they will stay there for a long time.


I am also entering both of these cards at Simon Says Monday Throwback Challenge to June 8th--For the Love of Plants, and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.




Thanks for Visiting
