Yellow Roses

Hello Everyone!!  This week, the kids went back to school - OMGosh how much QUIETER is my house!!!  LOL!!!  They were happy to go back and see all their friends though and I was happy to have some crafty time!!  :) 

I've used this time to make a Sympathy Card using the Featured Stamper challenge as inspiration!  I've cased Kim's For Me card, changing the layout and flowers but keeping the floral theme and similar colours and lace.  It's never easy to have to make this kind of card, but I just adore these roses found in the new With Sympathy set by JustRite - just wait, you'll see them on birthdays, friendship, thank you cards!!!  :)  This time I'd coloured them in yellow and gone with an muted, elegant colour palette which I thought would be perfect for this occasion.

I've created the base with Fawn Bazzill and layered with white and more Fawn.  The next layer is another piece of white, this time stamped with the Fleur de Lis Background Stamp by JustRite in Memento Desert Sand (what an awesome match this was for the cardstock!).  Across this I've added another piece of Fawn Bazzill and topped with a piece of white crochet lace.  Next I've stamped the roses from With Sympathy in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y00, Y21, Y35, Y38, G20, G21, G24).  It's been cut out with Labels 18 Nestabilities and I've lightly sponged some Desert Sand around the edges and then stamped the sentiment also from With Sympathy in Memento Rich Cocoa at the top.  I've attached it with foam tape and added a few Kaisercraft Chino Pearls to the top corners.

Stamps - With Sympathy, Fleur de Lis Background (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Fawn Bazzill, White.
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Desert Sand
Accessories - Copics, Labels 18 Nestabilities, Fiskars Lace Border Punch, May Arts White Crochet Lace, Kaisercraft Chino Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!!!  :)
