My Sheri Crafts Challenge #122: A Little Comfort

Our current challenge @ My Sheri Crafts is a simple (but important) one: to create a card that brings 'A Little Comfort' to it's recipient(s), either a sympathy card or simply Thinking of You!

I did a new take on my favorite simple sympathy card previously created here in black/cream, making it instead in shades of cream/light brown sugar. I started with a Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream CS base, added a DCWV light brown shade of textured CS and finished it off with PTI's Fine Linen CS. On that I stamped/embossed my BG vine stamp also from PTI's With Sympathy set) and embossed with American Crafts Brown Sugar Zing EP -- LOVE this color. I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set onto a Petite and Scalloped Oval by first using VersaMark Ink and adding American Crafts Brown Sugar ink on top and heating with my heat gun until dry. A few pearls were added below my sentiment and cream seam binding bow at the side for an understated sympathy card. Always good to have a couple of these in our stash, so I hope to see your version of "A Little Comfort" posted soon for our challenge @ My Sheri Crafts!!!
