With Sympathy

Hi there, I hope your Sunday is going well. Here's another card I made for the latest Artful INKables release; I used the "Bouquets and Butterflies" set to make a sympathy card. For the irises, I stamped the flower part an extra time, cut it out and layered it on top to make the flowers "pop". The ovals are Nestabilities dies, and the patterned paper is from Basic Grey's "Periphery" line. The sentiment was stamped on white paper, punched out with the "Word Window" punch (from Stampin' Up!), and mounted on top of a flourish die (also by Basic Grey).
Iain's picking up Nattie from the sleepover at her friend's house. And my plan for today is to tidy up my craft area! It's pretty bad :)

Pretty card. Isn't it amazing how fast our craft areas messy. I always have the best plans to keep it neat and before I know it.....

This is just beautiful, Toni! I love the colors you used, and the way you layered the ovals. I also love the way you did the sentiment! Gorgeous : )

I commend you on your where-with-all to clean up!!!! I could use a few lessons there.

Toni, this is such a lovely card! I love periphery and had it out today but decided against it. Your blue irises are wonderful.

Beautiful card, Toni! Sympathy cards can be so difficult to make, especially if you need one right away. Lovely design.

That's really cool, I know what it's like to live in an area with lots of beauty and not so many people. Good way to keep yourself busy and be creative. We moved to Marrakech and run a
Marrakech Holiday Villa.
