RIP- Sophie M

  This past week, a very special person was tragically killed in an auto accident. Her name is Sophie- we spent the afternoon at the Memorial Service- it was very sad. One cannot come away from a service like this with the realization that God can take us any day-any time without warning.  Don’t forget to tell your loved ones that you love them every opportunity you have!!!  Inspired by SCS and the Featured Stamper Jenn, this is the card I made:

























  I have this gorgeous Cally Lilly by IBFS- Stampinback line- that is perfect for sympathy cards AND for wedding cards.  I colored the image with Copics and cut it out- layering it on the base with dimensionals on the Lt side of the flower- sadly, my camera battery went dead after taking this photo- so no close up of the layering aka Paper Tole. I also did an Out of the Box technique with the Nestability, and a Wisped Frames technique. (Techniques from the Technique Junkies newsletter).  I added a very tiny line of clear Copic Spika for shimmer around the top layer of flower, and the bottom flower has a thin line of C1 around the border.  The Green matches better IRL……
  The sentiment is by Firecracker Designs By Pamela- HERE is the link to check out this set- it is 50% off for the FCD going out of business sale going on now.

This is so elegant! It has a lot of texture, but doesn't seem fussy at all.
