Bloomtangled Sympathy 5

Hello, everyone!  I have another sympathy card to share. I've been making a bunch of these lately for my Mom's stash as well as my own.  They are good to have on hand when needed during a sad time.  Again I used what has become my favourite cover plate die!

In making this card, I did something different than on my previous Bloomtangled sympathy cards. For this one, I die-cut the Bloomtangled Cover Plate and used it as a stencil to make the card I posted yesterday.  I thought I would end up throwing it away but it was so pretty that I kept it and made this card!  Two cards for the price of one!

DiesSTAMPlorations Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate - CUTplorations; MFT Die-namics Stitched Fishtail Flags Stax
Distress Ink:  Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass
Other ink: StazOn Jet Black
Stamp: Sentiment (Whimsy Stamps Everyday Moments)
Other:  Flower sequins

Again I'm joining the STAMPlorations 5th birthday celebration! There is so much incredible inspiration over there that I can't help myself! I feel sad that the celebration has ended, but there are still a couple days left to link up your projects!

The STAMPlorations birthday challenge is to CASE the STAMPgirls. I was inspired by STAMPgirl Melissa (again!). I love how she used the Bloomtangled 1 Cover Plate and soft colours.

How lucky you did not toss this as it is gorgeous on your card. I always like when one can get two cards for the price of one so to speak. LOL
