With Sympathy... Weekly Deals for Sept 15-21

With Sympathy

My card today was designed with a close family friend in mind. Her step-father passed away yesterday and she has been on my mind a lot the last few days. He was like a great grandfather to my children and he will be dearly missed. 

In this card I used three of our weekly deal items - the fringe scissors, the butterfly thinlits, and the whisper white satin ribbon. I used the stamping off method for some of the background fern leaves and the yellow floaty flowers. My color choices today were Crumb Cake for the card base and Crushed Curry for the butterflies and background layer. Mossy Meadow for the fringed grass on the front and the ink for the fern and sentiment.  I used 1/2" increments to create my layers for a non-standard look.
