Inspired Sympathy


Good morning, all!  I'll be up early on Saturdays from now on as I've taken on an extra shift at work.  Despite the fact it's a Saturday it's not so bad.  We see appointments in the morning but we don't do any surgeries (unless it's an emergency) so it's usually not too crazy.  Plus a few extra pennies to buy crafty goodies is never a bad thing!  :)  

My card today uses the colours from this week's Colour Throwdown challenge. I really like this combo and it reminded me of this card by Leigh.  I love the wavy lines she created and the sweet vellum over the top of it.  I didn't use any vellum in the end but my card was definitely inspired by Leigh's.  

Right, off to work now.  Have a lovely day!    


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Lucky Limeade, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Tickle My Fancy) Fresh Squeezed Stamps
Inks:  (Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (In The Meadow) Papertrey Ink
Gems:  (Limeade, Swimming Pool, Blue Jeans) Doodlebug, (Clear) Recollections

Extra time at work, boo, but if it means more crafty stuff, then it's all good, I suppose. ;) This might not be exactly a typical sympathy card, but I think that's a good thing -- and a great-looking design!
