Bloomtangled Sympathy Card

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower -
Beverly Jordan - thank you for joining me!

Today I'm sharing a sympathy card.  My Mom has asked me to make some sympathy cards for her stash as she is running low again.  I'll have several more to share in the coming days.


Distress Ink: Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass
Stamp:  Sentiment (Hero Arts Everyday Sayings)
Other:  Embossing powder (Ranger white)

This month STAMPlorations is having a big party to celebrate five years!  There are daily inspiration posts, a CASE the STAMPgirls challenge, and even a wishlist link-up!  I want to join in the fun and I hope you will too!  


The STAMPlorations 5th birthday celebration challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls.  I decided to CASE two of them!  First I was inspired by STAMPgirl Melissa by her use of the Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate, her inking of the flowers, and thoughtful sentiment.  I was inspired by the colour combo and the florals of STAMPgirl LauraJane's card:


As part of the 5-year celebration, STAMPlorations has a Wish List Link-up!  You can win a prize just by linking up your wish list!  I've made mine and there are so many items I love - take a look here!

Also linking up to the STAMPlorations Never-ending Anything Goes Challenge!
