Sponged Sympathy Card


 This card began with a panel of white that was sponged with just a hint of Distress spun sugar ink, then embossed with an Anna Griffin ef. The vertical panel was done with a heavier hand of pink sponged inks and embossed with a matching strip ef to the larger one. I added a black border done with a SU! scalloped edge punch. The flowers were die cut 3 times with a Darice Daisy Die; one from green, one from black (for the flower centers) and one from a different piece of sponged bright pink paper. The sentiment was heat-embossed with white ep using a SU! sentiment and I used a black marker to add highlights to the embossed flowers.

I'm sharing this with the Dies R Us Challenge #96 - flowers

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Sunday!

Very soft and lovely card. Perfect for sympathy wishes. That Anna folder is great. I like the little bit of black edging you added.

Awwww... Such great idea sponging with two different pink tones your panels and embossing them with those beautiful EF!! They look great and sooooo pretty!! And that black border compliments them so well! Love the sweet flowers and the black banner with the sentiment, too. Fabulous design!

Your card is a lovely sympathy card with the pretty e/f and your nuanced blending of the color, Carol. I love the black lacy border line and black simple sediment. Hugs, Darnell
