Love & Sympathy

Sympathy cards are not on my top 10 list of cards to make but essential to have on hand when needed.   This beautiful card met a two-fold purpose and thank goodness it was not for a purpose  intended.  My  stampers requested a sympathy card and just loved making this one.  Wisteria Wonder is such a soothing and peaceful  shade.  I always try to listen closely to my customers comments and try harder to remember them. 

The second purpose for this card was for my monthly challenge with the Pieces of Heart Stampin’ UP! group.  There were some lovely cards made for this task and I always enjoy spending time with my peeps.  They are the best!!

This card is a somewhat monochromatic but with the various mediums and tools used, it doesn't look monochromatic.  It's made using the new Daffodil Delight color in the Brights Collection by Stampin' UP! 
The new 3mm Basic Pearl mounted onto a the flower punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack took this card to the next level of elegance. The Basic Pearl jewels are self adhesive half pearls that come in 2mm, 3mm and 5mm sizes. Look to see them often as I absolutely love them!
Daffodil Delight reminds me of sunshine but doesn't have the heat  we are experiencing this weekend here in St. Louis.  Our temperature today reached 97 degrees with a humidity that made it feel like 107 degrees. On a day like today, it's best just to stay indoors and make a card!
