From the cottage…….

I thought I would post a few cards I made last week, unfortunately they are three sympathy cards that I have to send out after the weekend. Although these are sympathy cards the designs can be used for a lot of different  occasions.
                  Sympathy card
Simple card done in black & white. The background is embossed with the Birds and Swirls folder.
                 Sympathy card    
Embossed with a folder from Stampin-up. the center of the flowers were inked with a silver pen. I punched the butterfly in both purple and vellum.
               Sympathy card (2)
I used the tulip embossing folder on Baja Breeze, the image is also stamped in Baja Breeze, the accent colour is Early Expresso.
Sympathy cards are the most difficult ones for me to make but I hope they  give some comfort to the recipients.
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon some happier cards to come next week.

Barb - your sympathy cards are so pretty and are sure to be appreciated the recipients. I like that you left them CAS - they have such a calming and serene feel about them.
