Heartfelt Sympathy --PP #332

February 19, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us.  

We can't wait to see what you create.  Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card so, that narrowed down the sentiments I could choose from. 

My card is created on a white card base.  I used a few pieces of DSP that I found in my box for this card.  I do not know where they are from.  SO sorry. I used the wood grain piece as a background.   The feathers were cut using a rectangle die and a long rectangle strip was placed across the middle of the card using a coordinating pattern.  The Winnie and Walter The Big, The Bold The Comfort die was used to cut the word "sympathy".  I cut it out five times for dimension.  The heartfelt was stamped using the matching stamp set.  I added a few sparkling clear sequins to finish my card. 

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
