Deepest Sympathy

I am sharing another card I created while I was one of the May Guest Designer's for Craft Queen, using Pink Paislee papers

There is never a good time to be making a Sympathy Card, but it is always good to have come made for those times either you or your friends need them, sadly I have needed a couple lately.

For this card I have used one of my favourite stamp sets, the retired Layers of Color Gothic Crosses. I love the rustic look of it and the effect you can get when colouring it - this set was created by my amazingly talented friend Laura Kirste Campbell.  The sentiment is also from a retired Layers of color set.

Some layered flowers on a Seam Binding Bow, from Craft Queen - I have to add here that Nicole's Booth was my all time favourite one at the Quilt and Craft Fair, she has the most beautiful embellishments.

This card is for the following challenges:
Paperminutes - Shabby Chic/Vintage
Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes 
 It's All About the Vintage - Anything Vintage   
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl - anything goes
