May You find Peace and Love in the Memories you Cherish

Hi and Happy Monday!

I am not even sure anyone will even see this as it's been ages since I have signed on to this blog and months since I had stepped foot in my crafty space.  I just stated the other day I miss crafting. Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, and I just didn't want to buy an impersonal one. I never make these ahead of time because I don't want to have to ever need one I guess.

It felt good to get crafty again, but boy am I rusty!
I started this card by using a Kraft base which I adhered polka dot patterned paper to a piece of blue cardstock which I distressed. 
I then wrapped a length of gold textured ribbon horizontally around the card front and tied a fluffy bow which I embellished with an aqua flower centered with a silver heart. 

A tag was cut and layered from patterned paper and adhered to the right edge of the card. Silver and White Twine were added to the top of the tag. The frame was stamped in Aqua Mist ink and the sentiment (My Craft Spot) was stamped in Jet Black Ink in the center.

Lastly, the butterfly was stamped and gold-embossed on vellum and hand cut.  Gold and silver sequins were scattered throughout to complete the card.

That does it for me!
Have a blessed week!
