Bloomtangled Sympathy 3

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing another sympathy card. Although I've been making a bunch of sympathy cards for my Mom's stash lately, I think I will be keeping this one for my own stash as I have been needing a few sympathy cards myself.  It's best to have some on hand as I find them very difficult to make at the time they are needed. I love the colours in this one!


Dies: STAMPlorations Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate - CUTplorations; tag from Die-Versions Whispers Tag Set
Distress Oxides: Abandoned Coral, Evergreen Bough, Vintage Photo
Other ink:  Versamark
Stamp: Sentiment (My Craft Spot)
Other: Embossing powder (Ranger white), American Crafts twine

Again I'm joining the STAMPlorations 5th birthday celebration! There is so much incredible inspiration over there that I can't help myself! Have you checked it out yet? Prepare to be inspired!


The STAMPlorations birthday challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls. I was inspired by STAMPgirl Melissa!  I love how she used the Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate and also how she used a tag for the sentiment.


 
My colours were inspired by the challenge at Double Trouble and Color My Heart Color Dare 297, which are nutmeg, glacier, and sorbet.  I tried to match my colours as closely as possible.  Double Trouble also wanted to see stringed things (I used twine) and asked that we join the Color Dare challenge (done!).


I would also like to support the following challenges: Cardz TV AG 2/3; Crafty Catz AG optional Beautiful Blooms 2/3; Creatalicious AG Optional Flowers UE; Die Cuttin' Diva's Embossing Heat or Dry (I used both - I dry-embossed the die onto Bristol Smooth cardstock so I would know where to apply the inks, and the sentiment is heat embossed) 2/3; DL.ART June AG Linky 1/d; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 2/3; Penny's Paper-craftyAG 3/3; Simon Says Stamp Bright and Cheerful 4/5; Three Amigos Blog Hop Machine Die-Cutting (Cuttlebug) UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment Wk1 5/5

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Wow Kitty, these cover-plates are just stunning and outstanding by themselves! Always LOVE so much how you colouring them, and this one is very appropriated to the situation, with these colours!!! The brown label compliments it so well!
Great work, thanks for the inspiration!
