Green Sympathy


Hi there!  Yesterday was such a gorgeous day here that I couldn't bring myself to spend time in the Craft Cave.  Instead I went to Pilates, Luis and I ran errands and then we chilled out on the patio with Tex before going for a walk to the beach and finishing off the day with a bbq.  

Today Luis went out with the boys for a bit so I did some DT work in the Craft Cave and was also able to make a couple of other cards including this one for the current ColourQ challenge.  I used Paper Smooches' Positive Strokes 2 for the green and die cut some WPlus9 leaves from vellum.  The sentiment is Papertrey Ink - one of my favourite sympathy sentiments.  That's it for now.  Hope you all had a lovely weekend!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Vellum)
Stamps:  (Stripes from Positive Strokes 2) Paper Smooches, (Sentiment from Botanical Silhouettes) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade, Gumboil Green) Stampin' Up, (Soft Granite) Hero Arts
Dies:  (Leaves from Folk Art Florals) WPlus9

Sympathy cards are so hard to "get right," but Jen, you've really gotten it right with this one. The green paint strokes are quite nice, and those vellum leaves soften them perfectly. This is a wonderful card. Love it. Bev

What a beautiful and perfect sympathy card. Now I know where the perfect sympathy sentiment has been hiding...

I love the softness the vellum lends this card. And your choice of colours. A truly beautiful and contemplative sympathy card. I think that I'm going to need to case this!

What a beautiful sympathy card, and a perfect way to use all those greens. Love the vellum leaves. They soften everything up.
