With Sympathy #2 This Month

Hi there my crafty friends. Can't believe it is Thursday already...man it seems like time is just flying! I am sure glad that I had a chance to make another card today. My DH came home last night and told me about another death of someone he knows. He asked me to make another two sympathy cards, he needs them for Saturday and Sunday. I made one card through the Picture Perfect Creations Crafty challenges last week, but I still needed one more (click here). So I was looking at color challenges and sketches and figured I should just try and get it done (I do find them hard to make).

So challenge hopping I went and I landed upon The Play Date Cafe to see what their new color challenge was this week. It is full of fun colors to take from this picture. Julie Campbell rocked out on this inspiration challenge. Thanks!! A party is going on over their and a really good blog hop too!

I have been wanting to due this sketch from CardPatterns since Monday. Another sketch that is totally FAB!!!


Here is my inspired card from the above challenges. Sorry there is a little so much light shining off the silver. I hope that my DH will like this sympathy card. This first picture was actually width wise, but I can't seem to turn it on here (not sure why it is in this direction)hmmmm.... sorry about that. I just wanted you to see the flowers up close.



Recipe:
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers (SU) and Forever in Our Hearts (Verve)
Paper: Brushed gold, Brushed silver, Basic Black
Ink: Vera Fine (Black)
Accessories: Black embossing powder, silver pearls, gold elastic, black button, D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder.

Just maybe tonight might hold another card...could I possibly make it three cards in one day...we will see what my family has in store for me. I do have many idea's floating around in my head and they must come out...otherwise I will dream about them all night..LOL.
Thanks for stopping in. Wishing you a totally fabulous afternoon.
