Be Inspired #95 With Heartfelt Sympathy

I hadn't participated in a Cuttlebug Challenge in a long time, so decided I'd do a simple card for their Heartfelt Sympathy challenge this week. It's always a good idea to have a couple of these cards on hand. I wanted to keep it fairly simple, so chose to use my Provo Craft Textile embossing folder for the BG. I then simply added a couple of decorative stamps and pearls to my sentiment tag and secured it with a decorative braid I've had in my stash for forever.
Paper: Bazzill CS; SEI's Morning Meadow DP
Stamps: PTI's Round & Round (sentiment) and Vintage Labels
Ink: PTI's Dark Chocolate Palette
Embellishments: Kaiser Craft Chocolate pearls; Braid from stash
Tools: Spellbinders Wizard & Ribbon Tags Trio Two

This is a beautiful card! I love the shiny/shimmer paper and the gold is just to die for. Really fabulous.

Thanks for playing at the Cuttlebug Challenges!

Thank you! I happened to be online so I just thought i would write you back. Cutting out the embossing folder was not my idea - I saw it on a project, but when I went to go find them again - I searched for about 2 hours and couldn't find where I had seen it to give them proper credit! I will haven't come across it. Anyway, just thought you should know, but it is a fun thing to do with that folder! :)
