With Sympathy

This card is going to my Mum who sadly lost one of her closest friends this week. Although it was expected, death is never an easy thing to deal with. Colleen was a wonderful lady, talented papercrafter and someone we will not forget.

I started using this week's Mojo sketch - but then I turned the main panel so I guess this doesn't count anymore! It does however, qualify for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ---- to use pearls! (Can you think of any other challenge that could be any better for me!!)

I started with a base of Very Vanilla, layered with black bazzill and then two pieces of DCWV La Creme DSP. Over the join I've placed a piece of Very Vanilla with one edge punched with the Fiskars 'Lace' punch. On top of that is more black bazzill and then a piece of one inch cream satin ribbon. The main panel has been stamped using JustRite's beautiful Thinking of You Set in Jet Black Stazon and then cut using the Large Oval Nestabilities which is then layered on black bazzill cut using the Label 4 Nestabilities and popped up on foam tape. To finish off I've added some Prima flowers that my dear friend Michelle (aka sf9erfan, thanks girlie!!) sent me, added some Martha Stewart Branch punches and centred with a black pearl. I've also added some Kaisercraft Black Pearls to the top corner and some Latte Pearls to embellish the Label 4 die.

Stamps - Thinking of You (JustRite)

Paper - Very Vanilla, Black Bazzill, DCWV La Creme DSP

Ink - Jet Black Stazon

Accessories - Large Oval Nestabilities, Label 4 Nestabilities, Black and Latte Kaisercraft Pearls, Prima Flowers, Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Fiskars Lace border punch, 1 inch cream satin ribbon.

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