With Sympathy

Hey all! Wow...what a week, I am so glad it is Friday!! My son has a soccer tournament all weekend so today will probably be the only chance I get to spend any time in my craft room. I have been making the invitations for my brother-in-laws wedding and have 200 of 300 completed so I was relieved to make a card that was not wedding related!!

This card is for three challenges, Splitcoast Stampers WT223-Texting Challenge and LSC225-International Flair Challenge and Stamp Something's Black, White, and one other color somethings Challenge

I find that Sympathy Cards are always the hardest to make and this one was no exception!! Still not sure about all the components especially the bow but I do love the colors. The base is Ocean Tides cardstock from PTI. The text is actually a few words of sympathy typed in the Love Light font and translated into French and printed onto Ocean Tide cardstock in a slightly darker shade. I cut the half circle using my Fiskars Circle Cutter. I used a layer of black cs and PTI Vellum cardstock under the Ocean Tide satin ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by,
