Sympathy Hydrangea (Impression Obsession)

Hi, everyone!  A very warm welcome to my newest followers - Sandie Gough and Karen Lunagirl - it's lovely to have you here!

I'm back tonight with a sympathy card.  I like to keep a few on hand so I'm ready when the need arises.  For this card I used Impression Obsession die and sentiment stamp. I sponged some of the flowers with distress ink.

For the front panel, I added score lines.  The background is an embossed panel I received as a gift so I do not have the name.  I heat-embossed the sentiment stamp in white and then finished it off with some twine, pearls, and a butterfly charm from my stash.

Here are the supplies used:

I would like to support the following challenges:
  1. IO Blog Square Cards UE C5
  2. 613 Avenue Create AG 2/3
  3. DL.ART Use Purple and Green 1/3
  4. Scrapy Land Heat Embossing (Impression Obsession Hydrangea die available here) 2/3
  5. Scribble and Scrap AG 1/3
Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

P.S.  I'm celebrating my 50th birthday next month with Candy!  Help me celebrate - my candy is here!
