Create with Connie and Mary: Thoughts and Prayers

Welcome back friends and I hope all is well.  One thing about creating cards is that I make more cards than I can use, thankfully my mom and her friends are very supportive and frequently purchase cards for their occasions.  Unfortunately they've been needing a lot of sympathy cards and I'm having a hard time keeping up with what they need so I decided to make a sympathy card for this weeks Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge.  The stamp set Thoughts and Prayers is perfect for this challenge.  The cardbase is Crumb Cake and I added a layer of Soft Suede that I embossed with the Fancy Fan embossing folder.  Next I added two strips of DSP from the Poetry Prints DSP stack and a piece of Gumball Green 3/8" stitched satin ribbon as well. 

The main stamped image is stamped on Very Vanilla Cardstock and is stamped with Soft Suede ink and then sponged around the edge with Crumb Cake ink.  This piece was then matted on a layer of Midnight Muse cardstock.  The greeting is from the same stamp set and was cut out with the Apothecary Accents framelits and then sponged with Gumball Green ink.  The greeting was attached to the card with dimensionals so it pops.
 
I love how soft and elegant this card turned out, perfect.  I love this sketch and can't wait to use it again.  There's still time to play along with this weeks challenge, so give it a try.
 
Happy stamping!
