You're in My Thoughts

Today was class with my monthly stamping ladies, and they asked me to make a sympathy card. I don't have any sympathy sayings but thought this card might do....


I started with a piece of glossy paper then using these great Shades dye inks from Sweet Stamps, I stippled Palm Grove and Forest on the bottom, Tidal Wave and Aquamarine on the top.  Then I stamped the trees from Stampin Up's Lovely as a Tree set.  The background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The saying is from an old See-D stamp set.  I colored the ribbon to match with a Copic marker.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

This would be a perfect sympathy card! That set always looks fresh and new no matter how many times I see it.
