Papertrey Ink Sympathy Card

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend and are refreshed for the week ahead. I had a lovely weekend seeing family and friends and today, after I finished some housework, I got time to do some crafting. The Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink is to create a sympathy card so I got out some supplies and came up with this card:-

I used vintage cream card, stamped the stem from Flutterby Friends and then coloured it with Copics. I stamped a little butterfly which is from Penny Black and again coloured it in. I added some glitter to the leaves and the butterfly which you can see if you enlarge the picture.The lower sentiment came from With Sympathy and the higher one was from Round and Round. I really like linking two sentiments in this way. I used a corner punch, then inked the edges of the panel with some soft brown chalk ink
and mounted it and the small sentiment onto dark chocolate card. I wrapped some cream twine around the panel and tied a little knot before adhering it to a fine linen base card with some pop dots. The final touch was to add a couple of pink gems to make a visual triangle with the butterfly. Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
