Sympathy SFYTT

Doing a little more catch-up on overdue cards. Sadly, this time I need a sympathy card. This is one of the quickest cards I've made in a long, long time. I just took a block of Stampin' Up's Le Jardin designer paper, cut it into thirds, and sponged the edges. Added a stamped sentiment panel, ribbon and some quick embellishments and it was done! Gotta love the fast ones.

This is also my sample for Jen del Muro's weekly Sketch For You to Try. You'll find the sketch, plus samples by Jen and guest designer Sarah Green, at i{heart}2stamp. For more ideas for the sketch, visit Carole, Shannan, and Susan.

Have a great weekend!

Stamps: Fancy Florals by Verve Visual
Paper: Very Vanilla, Le Jardin dp
Ink: Always Artichoke
Accessories: paper piercer, Prima "Heavenly" flower, SU pretties kit, SU ivory taffeta ribbon, dimensionals, sponge daubers

I love how quick this card is. I am so excited about how you used the dsp. I am off to try this technique.

It's a good life!
