With Sympathy


I had a chance to make a card this weekend, and when I saw Kim's beautiful inspiration card over at MUSE #234, I knew I had to play along.

Here is Kim's inspiration card.

Kim's Inspiration Card


I was inspired by Kim's design, her blue flowers with green leaves and a pop of purple, and her die cut sympathy sentiment.  You can see that I kept pretty close to Kim's card.

I wanted the die cut sentiment to be the only die cut on the card, so I did a lot of masking to get the two flower clusters stamped with their leaves.  I cannot tell you how nervous I was stamping the last few things--worried I'd make a smudge or mistake at the very end.




I was also playing along with PTI Make it Monday #297: Mixing Florals, so I combined flowers from Gran's Garden with leaves from Herb Garden.  True confession--I think my leaves are really parsley!

I am also playing along at Addicted to CAS #120: Florals and CAS on Friday #117: Use a Die cut.




Thanks for Visiting
