With Sympathy

Morning all!
Sorry I didn't get on here yesterday but I had such a busy day! The sun was gloriously shining when I got up so out into the garden I went, and I was there until gone 4pm! Really made some headway out there though! Then I did my pile of 3 week's ironing, plus bedding, then I hoovered, then I dusted everywhere, and all while doing another 3 loads of washing and looking out for Keiran! As I said, a very busy day!

So I did get chance to finish the other Less is More challenge card that I mentioned I was making, but I didn't have the time or energy to upload it last night...so here it is...

Now when I made this I was going to use a lovely 'WIth Love' sentiment or something like that, but when I'd made it, I decided it would suit a sympathy card, so I printed the font of  on the computer in Monotype Corsiva. the flower is a stamp from Stamp It that I got reduced at GNPE (though their website seems to be non-existent which is probably why it was a cheap stamp!) and I just finished it with some black ribbon and pearls. The tiny pearls are from a nail art kit from Poundland!

I like the effect of the raised petals on the flower...it gives the card a handmade look but leaves it subtle enough for a sypathy card.

Thanks for looking today. I'm working until 9.30pm so I probably won't post again now 'til tomorrow.
Happy Tuesday!

  8. Did you cut around that flower??? I agree that it adds to the overall effect - a personal touch which would be most appreciated I'm sure.

  11. Hi Lizy, your card is very beautifully elegant. I love the flower. Thanks for the comments on my blog, I tried to make a link to the video on youtube that I followed to make the flower on my Little Claire's card, but I couldn't get it to work! Still new at this blogging lark. But if you search on youtube for Purple Handmade Flower Technique, hopefully you will find a lady with a Scottish accents making flowers out of a Prima bloom. That's how I made it. Hope it helps, Sarah
