Sympathy

I love cards that are all white but had not made one for awhile.  I had the perfect challenges to do this for so decided it was time make one.

This card is made with different layers of white cardstock made with Martha Stewart corner/border punches, Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug folders, Nellie Snellen dies, and JustRite stamps.  Each layer is attached with popdots to give it more dimension.






My camera doesn't always take the best pictures and I am still learning to edit them so I am posting a 2nd picture that hopefully shows more details

The challenge allowed all images to have color so I stamped the sayings in red.  For the center oval I colored the border leaves with red Smooch ink and added the swirl dots with gold Smooch.  I threaded white, polkadot ribbon around the oval, ending with a double bow.  The add a bit more elegance, I added small pearls.


The "Thinking of You" is also from a Justrite oval stamp but I masked the flower on it so that only the saying was inked and stamped.  It is layered on a Spellbinder die and small flowers from a Martha Stewart border punch are added to the sides.  The small butterflies are from a punch and I added more pearls.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
