With Sympathy using Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler

Hi!

I have a Sympathy card I needed for my son's teacher and family. Her father-in-law passed away this week. Pretty sad, and my son is super close to his teacher. So we wanted to make her a special card. 

On another note, I had a non-bloggy friend ask me about using Paper Smooches stamps in a non-cutsie and whimsical way, so I thought this might be a good example for her. 
In my case, I pulled an inspiration layout from the current Mojo Monday
I used With Sympathy from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.  I die-cut a burlap heart from a scrap of burlap added a tulle flower, paper rose, and tucked in some white tulle from my stash to the left of the sentiment panel following the prompt of the sketch. 
I took a length of Aqua Mist seam binding and wrapped it around and tied in a bow and embellished with some Natural Hemp Cord and embellished with an Aqua Button. The papers are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Portobello Road.

Well, that about covers the basics.

As mentioned, inspiration was found at:

Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes

Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Really Reasonable Ribbon - Flowers, Buttons or Bows. Craft-Dee-BowZ- Anything Goes Handmade Bows, Craftin' Desert Divas - Anything Goes, Just B Crazy - April Linky Party, Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes.
Thanks for visiting me! I always love it when you stop by my little place of creativity!
