Praying for you

To create a soft look on this sympathy card, I use some Mulberry paper that I've had in my stash forever!  See my post, here, for the info on this beautiful technique.  It's a little hard to see in the photo, but the yellow panel was stamped with a background image in the same color ink and the edges were inked with the same color.  In real life, it's a very subtle, pretty look.

One Stitch At A Time #249--the dead/remembrance day
Sweet Stampin--dies and/or punches

I think your prettily stamped flower panel is perfect for your sympathy card. I like your soft mounting too. I haven’t been able to play along with our sketches for a few weeks now but I’m delighted you joined in with my teamies at Sketch Saturday this week with this lovely card. Hugs, Lesley

So very pretty and elegant. I have a ton of Mulberry paper that I haven't looked at in years. Guess I should revisit that. Thanks for joining us at One Stitch at a Time this fortnight. Good luck. Hugs, Maggie.

The card we all dread making. I think it is a good idea to have some of these made up you know for when we need them. This is a lovely card. It's great to see you playing along at Fussy & Fancy and good luck with the Challenge. Judy DT
