Sympathy Card - Sending You Thoughts & Prayers!!

Happy Tuesday!

Hi All!!

Making this short and sweet, I completed this card late tonight, as I seem to be having a difficult time with this card tonight. It seems as if I wasn't ever going to finish it. So many things were not going smooth tonight. My printer decided to go on the blink, not letting me print the sentiment, and for some strange reason, I seem to be having the darnest time trying to photograph this card. I must have taken at least 8 shots before I was able to get a few good ones. Oh well, not to worry, as this is only my sample card.

This card was inspired by a wonderful and very creative lady, Just For Sharing, who has an amazing talent for designs. She is a member of the MB, and have shared some gorgeous cut files with us. Thank you Linda!!

For this card, I used all pearlized card stock, the butterfly was cut twice in DS, due to the heavy weight of the card stock. You can do that with DS, the bleeding heart and vine was welded together to form 1 solid piece, I then used a Pearl-X acrylic paint to accent the vines and butterfly. Used my ever so famous CB for the embossing, chalks, vellum, and SU pearls with PP inside. Ribbons and cross are from my stash. On the white of the bleeding hearts I use Diamond glitter dusk for a little touch of sparkle. Very cool and calming colors for this one. I wanted to add a lace border, but decided to keep it gender friendly. Thanks for looking, and have a nice night!
