Sympathy card

 I needed to make some sympathy cards so I decided to incorporate two challenges to help motivate me to get them done.  

I followed Card Patterns sketch 80 & Ted's Gold Challenge at Happily Ever Crafter.



I used three PTI sets on this card - Damask Designs, Leaf Prints & With Sympathy. 



The label was cut using Spellbinders Label 1 and the gold was colored on the edge with a Krylon gold leafing pen.  I double stamps the image behind the words with SU baroque burgundy topped with Brilliance galaxy gold.  The leaves were cut using PTI leaf dies and also double stamped to add sparkle.


Thanks for stopping by ~ Rebecca
