With Heartfelt Sympathy!


Hello friends!   I was asked to guest design for the Queen for the Day Challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week.  Our lovely queen this week is Kim  (berlycece), and you can find the card I cased HERE

 My image is SU! Pleasant Poppies, and I colored with Copics and cut out with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles. I added some white gel pen accents to the flowers for a little more pop. The base is So Saffron(SU!)   and I stamped the sentiment from SU! Simply Sketched on the base with Memento ink. The designer paper is BoBunny Serenade Collection... and I have to say I love this pack!   

 The border at the top that looks like loose leaf paper is Spellbinders On The Edge Borders, and the lower border is Spellbinders A2 Curved Border, which I cut once from the designer paper and once from black to create a mat.  I decorated the inside with the negative cutaway. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments!  I am getting ready for some Grandma time tomorrow through Sunday!  Can't!!!

Today's Blessing:

James 5:16
The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
