I was lucky enough to win one of the blog candy surprise packs from Joann at Sassy Raggedy. Lucky me! Thank you so much Joann!!!
Along with some lovely scalloped square card and envelopes, I also won these treasures.
There were stickers, die cuts, Xmas stamps, and even some charms! As soon as I opened these pink glittered butterflies, I knew I wanted to make a Sympathy card for my card basket. They are always sad cards to make, but I feel easier to make some ahead and have in on hand.
I just layered some of the differeent dies and embellishments that I won and placed them on a snippet of heavily glittered black wedding paper. I kept it really simple and will add a sentiment later. I like to pick something appropriate to the receiver of my card.
My photo is fairly wonky..sorry about that...it has made the elements look a bit crooked...they are OK IRL but this is a scheduled post as we are at the lake, so I can't take a new photo.
The black background hearts entwined paper is a scrap of wedding themed DP I had left over from the wedding album I made to take to England. Our cousins son married a lovely girl who shares a love of making cards and jewelry! She sent over the wedding photos CD so I just had to put them to paper!
I will be entering this card into the following challenges.
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. Sister Act Card challenge - Always Anything Goes
3. Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Something that starts with the letter B
4. Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge Blog - #9 Take flight
