Hello Stampin’ Friends!  I am excited to be taking part in a special International Blog Highlight by Kylie Bertucci!  

Demonstrators from all around the world are particpating and are sharing sympathy themed cards.  We’re asking for those visiting our blogs to vote for their favorite card – and the top 10 will get to particpate in a special blog hop!  


I’d sure appreciate your vote!!  You can vote here – VOTE!
To vote, simply click on the heart in the upper right hand corner

Here’s my card: 

Here’s how I created my card: (measurements at end of this post)
My card base is Very Vanilla. 

The next layer is Watercolor Paper – I created a background with a fun technique – step by step tutorial “how to”  HERE.


Once this dried, I added two stamped leaves with Night of Navy ink.

I embossed a square of Night of Navy cardstock with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.  


I used the Copper foil sheets (love these!) and the Seasonal Thinlets to cut a leaf and also a scalloped edge.   


My greeting, from Rose Wonder stamp set,  is stamped on a large oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.  I can’t seem to get enough of the gold faceted gems – and added one to finish my card!

Now please go and vote for my card!  Click HERE to vote!
