HEARTFELT

So excited! My Heartfelt card ROCKED the MASHUP! Thanks to the team over at Friday Mashup for the shout-out!
Happy Monday! It's time for another challenge over at The Pink Elephant, TPE 163. This week, the challenge is to create a sympathy/thinking of you project. I couldn't help but remember a dear lady that passed away recently as I was making this card. She was one of the first to welcome my husband and I into our church family many years ago, and I have her delicious sugar cookie recipe, that I will cherish even more now. You will be missed, Bernie, but I know that you are in a better place.
The sketch at Crazy 4 Challenges, C4C151, was just what I needed to get started with my sympathy card.
The color scheme over at Friday Mashup, FM73, using Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, and Soft Suede worked well for a thank you or a sympathy-themed card. Love the soft, subtle colors! I also submitted this card to the Speedy Fox and Friends #126.
Lots of layers for this one...had fun using some of my Stampin' Up! dies...isn't the doily and the big label fabulous? The flags/pennants I made just cutting strips of designer paper, then punching the bottom with a square punch.
Thanks for stopping by the stage. Head on over to The Pink Elephant and join in on the fun!

All Stampin' Up! today except the baker's twine (PTI) Stamps: Layered Labels Ink: Soft Suede Paper: So Saffron, assorted DSP Other: Big Shot, dies, buttons, baker's twine Pin It
