OCCC Sympathy

Sadly today I found out that a friend of mine lost her nephew - he was only 23yrs old.  Such a hard thing for the family to deal with.  I decided to use this week's Our Creative Corner challenge which was a sketch.  As is often the case with sympathy occasions, I found myself reaching for the Thinking of You set by JustRite Stampers.

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with Black and then two pieces of the La Creme DCWV paper.  Across the join is more VV that has been punched on one side with the Fiskars Lace Border Punch and topped with some 1" Black Satin Ribbon.  The focal panel is from Thinking of You by JustRite and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on VV.  I then cut it out with Small Oval Nesties and matted with black cut with Large Oval Nesties and than matted again with more VV cut with the Label 11 Nesties and then popped the whole panel up on foam tape.  To finish I added some small Kaisercraft Black Pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Thinking of You (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Black, La Creme DCWV DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Label 11, Small Classic Oval and Large Classic Oval Nestabilities, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, 1" Black Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Black Pearls, Foam Tape.

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