Everyone Wants Happiness

Today I have a sympathy card to share with you using some GORGEOUS stamps from Crafter's Companion.  I chose to use the Runway Inspired Challenge as inspiration for this card.  My colors are a bit bolder, but I loved the mix of color, white, and black pops that came from the inspiration photo.  I also liked how elements are a bit here and there, and yet organized at the same time.  Her black shoes grounded the dress perfectly, too.  Awesome!


I used the Stamp It! Australia Birds and Butterflies set with some distress inks and a beautiful sentiment from the Sentimentals Memories are Made set.  I love how beautifully these worked together!

The black mat and sequins added the perfect bit of black grounding in conjunction with the sentiment stamped in black.  I love the color on this, as well.  I splashed a bit of water over the distress inks to give it even more variation and texture.

I heat embossed the butterfly image with white powder and I love how it pops!  It's a fun image to work with.  Sympathy cards aren't always fun to make, but I find that if I have them on hand it's easier than making them when I actually need one.

And with that, I hope you Have a Happy!
