With Sympathy

The husband of a friend in my stamping group lost his battle with ALS on Tuesday. What an awful disease. I made this card for Joyce and her family.

I stamped the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink) in black on lightly textured ivory cardstock. I used Versamagic Sea Breeze ink for the images, which are from a Hampton Art set. I scored the lines on the left side with my Martha Stewart scoring tool and added a thin strip of cardstock. The matting is Aqua Mist from PTI. I added a pearl for the bird's eye and more pearls under the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Again, less is more! This is a really beautiful, tasteful card, Lynette - so elegant, and carries just the right message!

Hop over to my blog when you get a moment and see the altered box I've done. It's the first of a whole set.

Hope you are having a great weekend.

He he he Lynette! Great minds think alike! Thanks for your awesome comments on my blog. You're a star. I didn't think it was too bad an effort for my first attempt at altering a box. My hubby told me the man organising the sale is coming to see me on Wednesday... I hope he doesn't expect to take everything away with him because I've nothing like finished! I'm working on a mirror frame with butterflies at the moment, and also another rust one, this time with some embossed metal embellishments. The trouble is, everything takes So Long to dry!
