Friends with Flair and Sympathy



I needed a sympathy card to send to a friend, and this is what resulted. It was my first chance to ink up this Unity/Webster's Pages image. The beautiful patterned paper was part of the amazing goody package my friend Meg sent me, and I used a strip of the reverse side instead of ribbon. A little different from my usual standard sympathy card approach, and I quite like how it turned out. It's going in Simon Says Stamp's current Anything Goes challenge.

Supplies: white cardstock, Crate Paper Portrait Collection patterned paper, Unity/Webster's Pages Love stamp, Bevy of Butterflies sentiment, Brilliance coffee bean ink, clear embossing powder Pin It Now!

So you'll either get this twice, or the original disappeared into the netherworld of the internet.

Gorgeous card, Lindsey! I love the color combo, that strip of navy is the perfect grounding. Glad you are enjoying the paper!

Jocelyn Olson said...

LOVE the entire card, Lindsey!! The stamp is gorgeous; I haven't seen it, but probably because I tend to shy away from the "pretty" stamps. Seeing your card, I'm totally inspired!
