With Sympathy

Today's card was made for the Power Poppy challenge, I used the second sketch this time.

The woman I consider my stepmom lost her mother recently and so I needed a sympathy card to send to her. I love the new hyacinth digital image and decided to use that for my card. I resized the image, printed it out and then used my Scan N Cut to cut out the image. Instead of using a notebook edge on one of the layers like in the sketch I used a die from SugarPea Designs. I really liked the hearts for this card. The gray layer was embossed with a CB Argyle embossing folder. It's hard to see in the photos but I did use my silver Gelly Roll pen for a little sparkle on the hyacinths.

  1. Love how you’ve used the hearts on your back panel Lisa, this is so pretty! A beautiful touch of spring. Thanks so much for joining us at Power Poppy this month!

  2. I need this heart background... Love that it is perfect with the bulb! Just colored this myself. :-) I like the way you used it with the sketch, very very pretty. Thanks for playing in our Power and Spark challenge this month.
