CAS Sympathy

This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down one post or click HERE 
for my Play Date Cafe Anniversary card.

Hello friends!  I'm popping in with a quick card, trying to meet a deadline over at Freshly Made Sketches.


I've used up some pretty patterned paper strips and made several of these sympathy cards to sell at the boutique.  The ribbon is vintage, from my grandmother.  It's so soft!

Here's the sketch, which I flipped right to left, and used a sentiment in place of a shape.  (hope it's okay with the FMS folks!)


I'm also entering this at A Blog Named Hero:  'Clean Up Your Act' - make a clean and simple card or project.

Thank you so much for coming by!



Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Kind Words - Verve
Paper: white - PTI; patterns - Whisper stack - Colorbok
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: vintage satin ribbon
