Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #5

Phew! I’m just getting this one posted at the last minute.  I ended up taking an unexpected trip so I almost missed it.

I needed a sympathy card so I searched through my neglected stamps and used this Waltzing Mouse frame as a jumping off point. I love the frame stamp set but sadly it has been used only once prior to this card.

I don’t know about you but I really struggle with sympathy cards. For some reason it’s the one occasion that I like to keep the card super simple and focus on what I hand print inside. Anyhow here is what I came up with:

100_2599

I used watercolor paper because I wanted the little bit of texture. The flower, sentiment, heart and black base are all Stampin’ Up and the black ribbon is a piece from my stash of loose ribbon pieces. Here is a shot of the inside before I wrote in it:

100_2602

It’s pretty simple but I was happy with how it turned out.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my card and leaving a comment. I love it when you take time to comment, it really makes my day!
