With Sympathy

I made this card a while back for a friend.  I don't really consider myself a pink kind of girl, but it seemed soft and delicate, which is what I was hoping to convey with this card.  I still think sympathy cards are the hardest to make. 
The next picture shows the colors most closely to what they look like on the actual card.
I added the rhinestone button to the center of the flower and cut a velvety flower in half that I had on a bunch of hydrangeas in our bedroom to make the leaves.  I was pretty happy with how it turned out.
Stamp: Round & Round (PTI)
Ink: Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Chamomile Tea Dye Ink (PTI)
Paper: Cream, Mosaic Memories (Recollections)   [I love this paper pack!)
Other: Large Scallop Border Die (PTI), On the Edge Die (Tim Holtz), Prima Floral Embellishment, Pink Ribbon, Rhinestones, Cream Parcel Tag, Rhinestone Button


  1. The soft pinks you used and the ribbon do give a lovely softness to your card. Am not a pink girl myself either but i like them for the soft & delicate effect they give to a project.

  2. So pretty. I love pink and I love the scalloped edge. So cool.

  3. What a pretty sympathy card. Very Shabby Chic!
