In Sympathy

Hello Blog Friends, it is nice to be back sharing a card with you - I think I am finally getting control of my new laptop - I am not I-T savvy but am pleased that I have managed to work a few things out myself, along with creating some new watermarks - and this is one of them - it was fun working out all of the details - what do you think!?!

I have also managed a little time in The Studio and created this Sympathy card.  It is not always easy to create this kind of card, so I like to do them before I need one and want it to be pretty and make the recipient smile - if that is at all possible!

I have stamped the Stampers Anonymous image onto the Fleur de Elegance Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Decorative Accents using Imagine Crafts ‘featuring’ Tsukineko VersaMagic Multi-surface chalk ink in Aegean Blue.  The Die has also been used as a stencil, sponging around the inside edges, and the filigree edge using Aegean Blue and a Sponge Dauber.

The beautiful Mulberry Roses are from my stash and the divine pearl swirl is from Want2Scrap.  The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.  I have used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape and E-Z Adhesive Runner.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
