SC221 - With Sympathy

Today's card is for this week's Sketch Challenge over on SCS . I'm a little late getting it done, just this week has been so busy with the kids! We had excitement here last night, my eldest child lost his very first tooth!!!

I needed to make a Sympathy card, so I went with these beautiful Cafe Culture papers by Kaisercraft. I know I seem to be using brown a lot lately reminds me of a well known book that says....."Brown is warm. I miss brown. Everything that is supposed to be brown - tree trunks, rocks, dirt - is all covered in squashy green stuff here." :) I'm sure a lot of you know where that comes from!

I started with a base of cream, layered with Close to Cocoa and some dotted Kaisercraft paper - Cafe Culture. The large rectangular panel is Close to Cocoa layered with more Kaisercraft paper. The diamond panel is Chocolate Chip layered with cream and I pierced all the corners (and then covered most of them up *rolls eyes*) and over the bottom corner added some sheer brown ribbon and made a flat bow and putting a prima flower and Kaiser Chino pearl in the centre. The sentiment panel has been stamped using the retired SU 'Brighter Tomorrow' set in Close to Cocoa, matted on C to C card and pierced the edges. Finished off by adding some more chino pearls in the corners.

Can you believe it - a card with NO Nestabilities!!! I was a bit apprehensive when making this, but I think it turned out OK in the end.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
