With Sympathy


I've been MIA due to scheduling conflicts. It makes it hard to find time to get in my crafty space and get creative these days. It's all good, but I need to clone me on most days.

I have a sympathy card to share today using Cardabilites as my starting point.
 I started up with Buff Ivory Cardstock as the base of the card onto which I added my pieced patterned paper from a K & Company paper stack I've had for quite sometime. I added a length of crochet trim where the papers meet for added texture and visual interest.  I used a sentiment from My Pink Stamper. I think the script is so pretty.  I added lots of pretty flowers to include crochet flowers that I layered on top of the other.
I am going to keep this short and sweet this morning! 

As mentioned, I found inspiration from Cardabilites Sketch Challenge.

I hope you have a great day!
