Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge


Popping on quickly sharing another sympathy card. :-(  This time I used a sketch from Monday Lunchtime Sketch for inspiration. 

I was flipping through several paper pads and I decided to use a K & Company Paper Pad I have had for ages. It always feels great to give life to some neglected supplies. In fact, everything on this card has come from things I have had in my stash for a long time. 

I started with a blue card base. Not sure the name of it, but I know it's from Stampin' UP! (More than likely a retired color.) I layered my patterned papers on Bisque textured cardstock. I followed the layout of the sketch for placement, but I did take some creative liberty with the sentiment and bow. 
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot Jar Full of Flowers set

Here is the sketch from Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge

Thanks for popping by! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

It is nice to see a cheerfully colored sympathy card. All too many of them are gloomy. It does help to lift spirits. Excellent. Jim

So pretty! I hear you on using some of those older supplies, I could create for the rest of my life without buying one more item, lol. Fabulous job on this beautiful sympathy card, thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!

It does feel good to use old supplies, doesn't it? This is so pretty, Tammy! Love what you did with the sketch, and love your color and paper choices. Just so perfect for a sympathy card. The big bow, flower, and pearls add such an elegant touch!

I really like the colours you've used - it's still serene & calm, and so are the pearls & rose :)

Hi Tammy, I'm popping in to see what lovely creations you've recently made and am so sorry you're in need of sympathy cards this week... especially plural. :( Both of your cards are beautiful and will certainly deliver the healing love and support you intend. The cheerful colors and elegant pearls are gorgeous together. Lots of prayers for you and those in need!

Hugs and blessings,
