Another Out on a Limb Card!

Are you getting sick of this set yet? I'm certainly not! It's just so versatile and makes really quick cards. Unfortunately, I needed to make a sympathy card. A good friend recently lost her mother to cancer and this card is from a group of us. I wanted a soft colour combo that wasn't too bright. I used Blush blossom cardstock and stamped it with the linen background in pretty in pink ink. I then ran it through my cuttlebug with my textile folder. The main image is stamped on Poison Ivy cardstock (very shimmery) and I used close to cocoa and pixie pink chalk ink for the blossoms. I used old olive for the leaves as well as to matte the image and for the card base. I added a sentiment in rose red, a matching ribbon, and a half pearl. I hope it brings her some comfort.

Well I was unlucky enough to catch the same stomach flu that my daughter had - so it's been a quiet week around here. Hopefully we're both on the mend now and we can get busy! Hope you're having a great weekend!

What a great card. It is so soft and soothing!! Looks like a great stamp to play with too.
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog Kerry! I tried putting one of the daylight lightbulbs downstairs, but I think there is something wrong with our electrical, or it might not be strong enough, it just kept blinking. Have to come up with something else. Thanks for caring!
