Stampin Up, Pals Paper Arts sketch #304 Sympathy

I rarely post a Sympathy card.  I just do not make them until I need one. I guess I'm always hoping I won't have to  make another one.  But reality is, I'm making more and more of them. So, I decided with the advent of this wonderful sentiment set, to post one for the challenge.

The blue is our new Dapper Denim, I love it! And it is so beautiful with Crumb Cake. Of course most colors go with Crumb Cake, but this one is really nice.   I sure don't know what I'd do without CC, hope it's here for a long, long time.

Colors for this card are, Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim, and Garden Green.

I combined the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set with the fern from Butterfly Basics and used the Woodgrain embossing folder for one layer.  I stamped the fern on vellum CS and rounded the corners. It seemed to want that.

The sentiment set is cut out using the new Layered square framelits. These are wonderful. 4 sets of framelits to allow you to mix and match scalloped and regular squares, and also you can decide how much room between them you want.  I wanted my scallops to just peek out here.

Thanks for stopping by, I sure hope you enjoyed.

Beautiful, Lynn! The colors are so serene. Although no one likes to create a sympathy card, this one will surely comfort the recipient. Thanks for playing with the PPA Sketch Team this week!
