My sympathy card stock is sadly depleted at the moment. I like to have these type of cards on hand. Sometimes I am sending them out, but often a friend asks if I have one on hand as they want to send something made with love.
My NBUS item today is this modest background DP. It is from a 6x6 Forever in Time Vintage Two paper pad from the Dollar Store. The stamp is another image from the Inkadinkado Meadow stamp I used on my last card. I think it is also NBUS as I do not remember using this image before...but...one never knows.
To help keep my goal of using a NBUS item on every card I post this year, I am now adding a red dot to items as I use them, and also to items that I know for certain I have used in the past. As you can assume, sometimes it gets daunting to remember.
In keeping with my last card, the image is again stamped onto a snippet of Momento faux inky card. I matted it with another snippet of black card. I added some pop dotted butterflies that are also from the Dollar Store. They have a lovely glittery surface.
The indigo inky background and my silhouette meadow flowers stamp now qualify for Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge. Check out her lovely challenge. She has great themes and some lovely prizes!
Over the last few years,I used to go to the Dollar Stores with my neighbour (the cardmaker). I would pick up items for scrapbooking or cardmaking and stash them away in my craft room. I am making an effort to use up these items as I would like to use them up and regain the real estate they occupy in my craft room! Keeping that in mind, I am now working on several more sympathy cards just like this one. Might as well use all 4 pages of the black script background and the rest of the blue butterflies!
I am entering this card in the following challenges
1.The Butterfly Challenge - the colour indigo and a silhouette and a butterfly of course!
