Today I had need of a sympathy card for a friend whose husband died recently so I chose to use stamps from Altenew to create this card design.
I used the Altenew Striped Florals set for the focal design and the sentiment is from the Altenew Painted Greetings set. I went with a fairly CAS design which I colored in with Copics. By adding some bling and a pretty ribbon bow I dressed it up a bit more. In the center of the flower I used a long forgotten product to add a glittery gold look....a pen from a Sakura Stardust Galaxy gelly roll set.
My focal and layering panels were die cut with a set of MFT Die-Namics Stitched Rounded Rectangle Stackers dies. The last step was to add the ribbon and rhinestones.
I think I will leave the inside blank so that I can write a personal message in it. I hope I can find some words of comfort for her.
I am going to enter this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which we are to use bling of some sort on our cards.
Well, here the weekend is whooshing by as well. While my hubby went to a Farm and Home Show event in town this morning I decided to work on this card. It was nice and quiet and a good time to concentrate.
I hope your weekend is going well too. Until next time take care. And, thanks for your sweet words always.
