Another Sympathy Card

Hi, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Paula Williams - thank you for joining me!  I met Paula on YouTube - please go check out her channel and tell her Kitty sent you!

Today I'm sharing another sympathy card.  I mentioned yesterday that I like to make a few to have on hand as I find them so difficult to make at the time when they are needed.  I made a few more but I'll share the others later.

I have loads of these paint chips in my stash from the good old days when they were trendy.  I still enjoy using them every now and then.  I trimmed off the colour names and popped it up on foam tape.

  • Clear stamp:  Sentiment (Impression Obsession Sympathy Sentiments)
  • Ink:  Your Next Stamp Purple Passion
  • Die:  Memory Box Geneva Vine
  • Other:  Paint chip and clear sequins from my stash

I would like to support the following challenges:
Bad Kitty's Craftroom Purple Day in support of Epilepsy
Cardz TV 42 AG 3/3
Crafter's Castle AG Optional Dimensional Projects 1/3 C10

That is a clever idea! I'm always in need of color matching help :)
Thanks for your comments on my flickr account. Ever since you made your own background paper for Beccy's challenge I wanted to try it. Thanks again for the inspiration!

Your sympathy card is lovely with the flower and purples! So smart to do sympathy cards ahead of time - I have the same problem!

So very pretty and great way of using the paint chips. I recall I have a lot of them stowed away too. You have inspired me now! This is a gorgeous sympathy card with that wonderful floral you used.

Well aren't you the clever one. Every time I am near a paint store I wonder what I could do with those paint chips. I will wonder no longer, I am pinning for future reference. I LOVE this, it's simply stunning, and perfect for a sympathy card, if there is such a thing. Thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge
