With Sympathy



I started this card by adding a piece of patterned paper and pink, gingham, fabric tape to my rustic cream card base. A sentiment was stamped in Charcoal ink to the lower right corner of the card front.  A cross stitched bird was stamped in Stick Candy Ink onto sage cardstock and fussy cut and popped up with foam mounting tape onto the circular die cuts which was stamped with a flower.

For an embellishing touch, a row of buttons were added to the card front followed by some darling little flower rhinestones. 

We would like to see a homemade theme along with pink and green in your project. I can't wait to see what you create!

Have a fantastic day!
