I'm usually not home on Fridays but decided to make my 3 day weekend, for Labor Day,
a 4 day weekend. So of course I have to try and satisfy my addiction to card making
by creating some new ones. I'm using sketch # 101 from Freshly Made Sketches for
this one and I made it a Sympathy card. Luckily I don't need those very often but
thought I could add it to my stash of other cards.
Here is the sketch -
and my version
I had this stamp which is part of a Stampendous set called Orchid Greetings that I
found on clearance and decided to give it a try. After stamping it on the beige card stock
with Dew Drop Brilliance coffee bean ink, I used Smooch inks to color the image. I love
those as they give just a little shimmer. The printed paper is from DCWV 8x8 Linen Closet
Stack. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the brown and beige strips under
the sentiment rather than using banners. The gold sentiment is from Tiny Words and
Phrases Dazzles from Paper Wishes. I added 3 green pearls to finish it off. Thanks for
taking a look!
