Good Tuesday Morning!
Unfortunately, I find myself in need of a few sympathy cards this week. As stated before, it's one of those cards I intend to make ahead, but somehow don't get around to doing it. They are just hard for me to make, and I would rather not think about having the need for one. This week, I need two.
So, with a little help today from Retro Sketches for inspiration...here is my first card. The other will be in the works shortly.
I started with a card base of Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock which has been embossed. I distressed the edges with Vintage Photo ink. The patterned paper is from Graphic 44. The sentiment (Stampabilities) is stamped on a die-cut circle using Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. The circle die is from My Creative Time. I had a chipboard butterfly that I painted and distressed finally adding some chunky glitter before adding it to my card front. I added a few embellishing touches by adding small Kraft pearls to the circle and a satin rose to the center of the butterfly.
The challenge at Retro Sketches is to use a sketch of your choice from their archives. I chose Retro Sketch #56.
Thank you for stopping in. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!
