Today, my heart weighs heavy....I learned that one of my bestest friend's Mom passed away last night. Tonda and I had LOTS of crazy, teen fun in high school....I spent many hours cracking jokes, laughing and having fun with her parents. So, it goes without saying that I have shed many tears this morning, but I have reminisced on SO many more memories. Cathy was a wonderful wife, a loving and supportive Mom and Grandmother, and full of fun and spunk for each of the friendships she had created through her long life. I'm truly blessed to have known such a kind, caring, and super wonderful woman.
This is card #2 from a Sympathy card class I held a few weeks ago. When I first saw Peaceful Petals in the Occasions mini catalog, I wasn't sure that I *needed* another flower stamp set in my stash, buuuut, there is just something about this set that I find very soothing and elegant. These are flowers that will render themselves as stamped silouettes or enjoy the therapy of water coloring with my Aqua Painter.
I just love how the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper compliments and softens any vibrant colors of Gumball Green and Tangerine Tango. The flower image was inked with Jet Black StazOn and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. My go to sentiment-filled stamp set is Petite Pairs....there are 18 stamps in this set....a wonderful sentiment for sooo many occasions. Even though I did not add any embellishments such as ribbons, buttons, or hardware, I think the elegancy of this card was polished with the main focal points (flower and sentiment panels) popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
