With Sympathy

The week is flying by. I've got a million things to do before we fly out to New Mexico next week. I've got to get to the mall today to buy the Little Guy some shoes. The shoes he used for school are worn out! He's got flip-flops and Iron Man sandals, but he needs some closed toe shoes.

This card is another item from my desk-cleaning last week. Months ago, I had already stamped the Wallpaper Flowers stamp from Hero Arts, embossed, and colored it with colored pencils. I added the pearlized Dew Drops to each flower and add a scrap of pink patterned paper to the bottom. The string is an upcycled item from some packaging. I don't have that many sympathy sentiments, so this one looks too petite for the scale of the card. The other one was too big, so I had to use this one. Well, I've got to run!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Wallpaper Flowers (Hero Arts), Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU!)
Paper: kraft, kromekote, pink designer paper (SU!), card base (CA Paper Goods)
Ink: VersaMark, Basic Black (SU!)
Tools: Heat tool
Other: white embossing powder, Dew Drops, string from my stash, foam tape (3M), colored pencils (Crayola)
