Lovely Silhouettes

Good Morning Everyone!  I hope your week is going well, now that its on the downhill side to the weekend, it has to be good.

I was asked by a friend to make a Sympathy card, these are not the easiest cards for me to make when making them for people I'm unfamiliar with.  This type card is so personal.  So I had to set out to find what would be fitting, my eyes fell on one of my favorite sets from Sweet n Sassy.  I love Serene Silhouettes and it was the perfect choice for this card.  What do you think?....

I did use a great sketch from Card Patterns for the layout.  I created the background using baby wipes, re-inkers and glossy card stock.  I like the simple layout, it's very versatile.  The embossing and flowers added feminity and softness.

Card stock:  Glossy White, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue (SU!)
Stamps/Ink:  Serene Silhouettes (SNSS), Mini Messages (PTI), Tuxedo Black (Memento), Bashful Blue,
   Lavendar Lace, Certainly Celery
Tools:  Circle cutter (CM), Cuttlebug, Textile Embossing folder, Word Window punch, baby wipes
Embellishments:  Flowers (Prima), Pearls (Recollections)

Have you heard about Sweet n Sassy's digi sale?  Well, you can't beat this one.... now is the time to go shopping!!

We'll see you in the virtual shopping line!  LOL  Have a wonderful day!!
