Thinking of You

Hi everyone, I hope that you are all having a good weekend so far. My weekend has been pretty laid back so far…just working on cards that I need to get done…it would sure be nice if my mojo would come back home to stay.

The card I’m showing today is a Sympathy card that I made up for someone close to me and the memorial was today. Digistamps4Joy recently released an image called Music Sheet and I knew that it would be the perfect image for the sympathy card. It would also be great for an anniversary card, Christmas…well you take a look and I’m sure you’ll be able to think of lots of uses for it.

I started off with a pale pink cs from Bazzil. On top of this I used a beautiful beige dp from BoBunny. I used my Nestibilities Beaded Oval Die to cut out the dp behind the image…that paper was from my stash. I used my SU Pastels to distress around the image in pink. The scalloped border is done using my Meridian Border Die by Memory Box. I added light pink small and medium flat backed pearls from Recollections. I used my Memory Makers corner punch on the corners of the BoBunny papers on each of the ends and the inside. I also added vines on my ends made with my Savannah Border Punch by Memory Box.

The sentiment inside was a freebie from A Piece of Heart. I printed it out on the light pink cs and cut it out with my Nestibilities Beaded Oval Die. The type of card I made is called a Middlestep card and you can find the tutorial here.
Thanks for looking ~ Charlene
