Shabby Sympathy

DSCF5399-001

Wow, we woke up to rain this morning---lots of nice, soft falling rain!  We needed it!  I actually got some housework done and found a little stamping time.  The Sugar Creek Hollow challenge #20 is to make a sympathy card; we always need them.  I pulled out Fan Fair DP (such vintage yumminess), Blessings from Heaven, and Papaya Collage:

I also used the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 264:

and the color challenge of pink, navy and my choice (rose) from Our Creative Corner:

I just used the elements from the Papaya collage set and stamped them in Primrose Petals and Midnight Muse on VV cardstock and cut them out, adding some pearls, glitter, seam binding and lace:

I realized (too late) that my seam binding doesn’t exactly match my DP…..oh well!  I included a Bible verse on the inside along with elements from the set, stamped off once:

I know this is mean…..but this is how Cassidy awoke this morning, and she HATES to have her hair combed or brushed:

She is feeling better, despite the look on her face!  Enjoy your day!

Oh my goodness...I looked exactly the same way this morning! Only not nearly as adorable. :) Your sympathy card is superb. I really like that you chose rose as your third color. The very touching sentiment has been beautifully framed with the most elegant embellishments. Your card is truly beautiful.

Thank you so much for joining in the challenge at Our Creative Corner!

Gorgeous card.

The picture of Cassidy is so funny. Reminds me of my niece when she was young--we used to call her Cousin Itt when she woke up.

Such a beautiful sympathy card LeAnne. I remember those hair brushing days with my own daughter, now she brushes too often.

Tammy said...

Love this beautiful card. The colors and vintage looks is so pretty.
Poor little Cassidy. Looks like maybe an little longer in bed would make her happy. LOL I love the hair. I mess mine up just because. LOL

What a beautiful card, LeAnne, I love that bow and the way you have nested the pearls into it.
The photo of Cassidy would be very cute on a scrapbook page!
Thanks for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.

Have just caught up with your blog LeAnne and I'm so sorry about the sadness of late. This is a beautiful card and Papaya Collage is on my list for sure! My daughter felt just the same way as Cassidy about having her hair brushed when she was small!

Linda said...

I must have missed this card yesterday! This is simply stunning. I think you have that rumpled ribbon down to a science. Wow.

Oh, poor Cassidy. My nieces hate their hair brushed too! My daughter would have let me play with her hair all day.

This card is stunning!!!! I love the crinkled bow!!!!
