With Sympathy

Have a couple friends that needed sympathy cards so I combined this one with Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge - CCCC64 to use cherry cobbler, pacific point, marina mist, always artichoke and whisper white. I adore these colors together!!! {may have to make another card since I am early this week} We've had snow and ice here in the south and it has slowed things down a bit. I grew up just a little south of Chicago so, I understand snow and ice but, since we don't have it often here- no big investments in ice/slag to keep all the roads clear. 

The marina mist is stamped with pacific point using Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds. Monika Davis at MAD Stamper made a card this week where she did this and I loved it together so I cased that idea. Added cherry cobbler for a background panel accent ... cherry cobbler is a gorgeous color!! Sewed a little on seam binding ribbon and added lace. Artichoke leaves, a prima flower with crystals, and a big old bow finished it off.

TFL!! Love when you stop by and appreciate all your kind words!!

Wow, that is gorgeous! We also live in the sunny south -- which is not so sunny and covered with snow and ice today. Good thing I like to be inside with all my toys! :)

What a gorgeous creation!!!

you asked me about the little hearts with the sentiment on my verve card...I dug around and found them in a now retired set Hope and Grace by The Greeting Farm!
