Designers Choice Challenge at Repeat Impressions

It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog.  Lynette is challenging us all to make and link a sympathy card. We all know that is one card we hate to use but need to have on hand just in case.  Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge.

For my card, I stamped the dandelion and sentiment in a light carmel ink. I cut out the sentiment with a circle nestie and layered on a scalloped circle out of the same patterned paper used for the flag. The bottom of the main piece was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug) and layered on a black piece and then on a light yellow piece that had rounded corners and a strip cut out of the middle. I rarely use such light ink colors only, but do like how it turned out for a subtle sympathy card.

I am entering this card in the challenge at  Simon Says Stamp and Show for anything goes.

Stamping smiles, Karen
