A Sympathy Card

Good morning my friends....I finally had a chance to sit down and stamp a sympathy card for my friend who lost her dad about a month ago. I know- it's really late, but Between our 3 week holiday and getting back into the school grind, it just got pushed to the backburner:( I made her a batch of yummy muffins that I'm going to deliver. I used the same SSSC layout as my last post. It's such a quick and easy sketch and it flows nicely.
I stamped the tree in memento rich cocoa and the Verve sentiment in old olive (SU). The image is cut with a circle nestie. I used my brand-spankin new dimensional pearls and daubed each and every leaf with 'espresso', and then went around the circle with 'bottle'. Very simple, but elegant. I like to make my sympathy cards without alot of extras, just heartfelt and to the point, with a clean and simple design.

I love Verve for the fact that they have some really nice Christian sentiments. You don`t find that often and they are so beautiful and the fonts are absolutely gorgeous! And an added bonus, you can buy these individually rather than having to fish out for a whole set:)

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers (SU), Proverbs 3:5 (Verve)
Ink: Memento rich cocoa, SU Old Olive
Ribbon: SU
Dies: Spellbinders
Other: Dimensionals, Dimensional Pearls (Ranger)
