Wee #66 & RCC19

Sympathy cards are always a challenge. I need to make more to have on hand- as it's always harder when you need one....PTI vintage cream cardstock, vintage lace border die (for embossing), botanical silhouettes stamps. SU! ink, May Arts silk ribbon.
After I stamped the sentiment in green, I stamped over it with versamark & heat embossed with clear powder. Can you see the shine? (you can always click the pics to see more detail...)
 I've got a couple of challenges to link this up to- Wee Memories 'simply sentiments'
 And the Ribbon Carousel 'anything goes'
Thanks so much for stopping by- I'd love to hear what you think!

Sooo very pretty! Love the colours you've used, and the softness and elegance of it is just perfect for a sympathy card. Beautiful :-)

This is perfect for a sympathy card, and I dislike having to make them! I never have them on hand because well I have this feeling I am borrowing trouble, and when I need one it's always hard to make. Ugg! You have done a fabulous job "as always"! :-)

Beautiful card... perhaps your sympathy needs will be for something small, like the one I sent my sister when her vintage caravan died?

OHHH! I totally agree--I need to have more on hand just in case. I pray that I don't have to use them--and when I do, it's never an easy card to make! LOVE this card--it's beautiful and brings a sense of peace (those colors are perfect for that!). Beautiful silk ribbon! I MUST get me some of that! WOW! I can't believe you stamped your sentiment 2x! That's talent! Fab job!! THANKS so much for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the RCC!

I agree - ALWAYS harder to make a sympathy card when you need one - this card is lovely!! Hope you don't need it any time soon.
