PAPER PLAYERS CHALLENGE # 52
Unfortunately we all need sympathy cards from time to time and I needed one for a friend of mine whose 90 year old father recently passed away.
Here is my take on a CAS card for a challenge at Paper Players challenge #52.
I started with white cs; matted a piece each of daffodil delight and basic gray and embossed the gray cs with a Cuttlebug EF. I then stamped my image onto a smaller piece of ww cs using basic gray ink, added the tiny bird images in dd ink. I really liked the color combination and the itty-bitty yellow birds perched in the trees. I think they just set off the whole scene.
I also rounded the two upper corners of the cs (something I picked up from my daughter's cards) to soften the look.
I thought it still needed a little something so I added the white/dd ribbon and tied a knot. Stamped the sentiment on a die cut and dd stamped label and adhered to the card.
I'm happy with the card and how it turned out, which is not usually the case. I think my friend will like it too.
Hope you do also, thanks for looking.
