Sympathy card


I really like "Thoughts and Prayers" stamp set from Stampin'Up because it is so versatile. This time I am using it in soft pastels. I have paired it with reitred Barely Banana textured paper, scraps of dsp from a few years agao and Very Vanilla. I colored the tree with markers using the 'huffing' method to stamp on the cs. Then I accented the leaves with Pretty in Pink marker. The tree inks are retired Mellow Moss and Close to Cocoa. I sponged the background in Mellow Moss.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Hi Barbara! Oh this is such a great set and you really made it in such soothing and pretty colors! I'm going to miss some of the colors! I love the soft subtle tones so much! I love the card in the post below this too! Great job!!! I wish I had some classes around here to take... it sounds like it would really inspire and be fun!

So good to see you today stop by my blog! I've had a crazy busy summer and have not done too much blogging. Perhaps it will be better now, though we still have some travel ahead of us. Hope all is well with you!?
Hugs,
Grace
