IC201 dandelion sympathy

happy saturday to all who are visiting my blog today. If this is your first time-welcome and I hope you will become a regular visitor. if you like what you see sign up for email updates. that way my posts will be delivered right to your inbox.

it was such a beautiful day here in pittsburgh-cool but sunny. the trees are beginning their awesome display of autumn color. next week-end they should be at their peak of beauty.

on saturday i so enjoy taking part in the inspiration challenge over at splitcoaststampers. we always have the best internet sites to go to for inspiration in our card making.

today, we visited an etsy store "tzaddishop".
after looking around i chose this dandelion necklace as my inspiration piece.

i decided to make a sympathy card and the layout i used on it is from mercy kerin's tuesday challenge.

i kept it fairly simple because that's how i think sympathy cards should be. my card is sprayed with glimmer mist to replicate the dusting of gold on the necklace.
that's my post for today-thanks again for stopping. remember to leave me a comment. i read them all and really like hearing from everyone.

card recipe:
stamps: great impressions, rubber cottage
paper: stampin-up choc chip, kraft, kraft designer paper
ink: choc chip
accessories: glimmer mist, inque boutique brads, oval punches, nesties


  1. Wonderful card. What a gorgeous inspiration piece and you've captured it beautifully on your card.

  2. mary...this is so pretty and elegant! i love the clean lines and the color combo!

    thanks for playing along with my sketch for this've done an amazing job!
