Sweet Stamps Sympathy

If you are looking for the Anita Be Stampin Challenge, Please scroll down.

Today our challenge over at the Sweet Stamps Blog is to make a sympathy card.
For this card I used  "With Sympathy" sentiment (975C) and the Oval Lace Frame (8018) with white Dye ink and stamped it unto  Parchment Craft vellum. I also one of the flowers from the Fancy Flowers Set #2 (S002). I embossed the images with pearl embossing powder.The effect is produced by the parchment technique. I used the 4 split perforating tool to cut out my images. I place my focal image on a Little Stackers Inverted Scallop die. I tried my hand with the metal grid to add some texture to my focal image.
I dry embossed some lavender cs using the Daisy and Swirl embossing folder.
I added a purple ribbon, bow and pearls for embellies.Thanks for stopping by today and hop on over to our blog to see what all the other designers have created.
