Our challenge this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations is to create a "Sympathy" card along with the great sketch layout! This is a type of card that we don't like creating, but is always good to have in your stash.

Stamp Set - Just Believe, Petite Pairs
Ink - Nil
Cardstock - Whisper White, Bashful Blue
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots
Punches - Scallop Trim Border, Oval
Embosslits - Beautiful Wings
Ribbon - 5/8" Organza - Whisper White
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Pearls, Stampin' Up! Markers - Rose Red & Wild Wasabi, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Bone Folder, Big Shot
I wanted to use a colour I haven't touched in a lot time, so it was basically a toss up between the new "In Colours" or Bashful Blue, which won in the end.
I inked my main image with Stampin' Markers of Wild Wasabi & Rose Red & stamped directly onto the larger piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I did this twice, with the 2nd time stamping a little lower onto the Cardstock, the second time around.
I adhered a piece of Ribbon towards the bottom of the embossed piece. The whole piece was then adhered to theBase Card - Bashful Blue - with Snail Adhesive. I stamped my sentiment with Rose Red & Wild Wasabi Markers, punched out the Oval Punch & adhered to the top of the Ribbon. I tied a small bow & adhered to the bottom part of the punched oval with a Mini Glue Dot.
A scap piece of Whisper White Cardstock was run through the Big Shot with the Beautufil Wings Embosslits Folder, wings curled a little with my Bone Folder & attached ramdomly to the card with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
To finish the card, I applied small Pearls to the flowers & also to the centre of the butterflies.
All in all a very simple & easy card, but one I am happy with.
