With Sympathy

Happy Weekend! Just a quick post tonight of a card that I was able to play with today. I decided to make a sympathy card for my in stock cards. This is one that I usually don't do ahead but this time I'm going to be proactive.

I made this card with a set called Pretty Peacocks from Imagine That! This is an image from the March Progressive stamp challenge. The set also have some gorgeous peacocks as well as these beautiful flowers. The image is precolored. I added one of the sentiments from the set. And then I printed a second image and cut one flower as an embellishment. The inside of each flower has Diamond Stickles added. I cut it out from a Spellbinders pendant die. I inked the edges of the die cut with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. The background is embossed with the Victoria embossing folder with an added grey layer behind it. I added a plaid scrap piece from my box and over top the scrap is a sheer ribbon with a sparkly edge. I used the Tuesday Morning sketch as my inspiration.

I am entering these challenges:
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
