A Sympathy Card

Happy mid-week, everyone!  That means another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

This week we are asking for Thinking of You or Sympathy cards.  I chose to make a sympathy card, knowing that it would be nice to have one ready next time a sad occasion warrants one........

SSS Sympathy, Nov. 7

I used some beautiful Hero Arts stamps: the Antique Flower Background, and the sentiment from With
Sympathy.  This set has the most beautiful font and some really lovely sentiments included - I think it's something we should all have for these types of occasions.  I stamped them both in black, embossing the sentiment, and then framed up each panel in black before adhering them to my card base.  Then I used my Die-Namics Rolled Rose die and some gold felt to make my flower.  These roses are really easy to make when using soft felt.  The leaves are also die-cut felt, and I added some gold pearls to finish.  

Please visit the Simon Says Stamp blog to see what our Guest Designer Barb Engler and the rest of my teamies did for this challenge.  As always, there's a $50.00 gift voucher available to a lucky random winner.
