Me and Carrie Lou Sympathy

I needed a sympathy card and I wanted to used my new Twinkling H2Os so this is what I created. I used the Butterfly Impressionability on the Olive Green CS and ran Archival Moonlight White across to highlight the design. I attached this layer to a Red Purple The Paper Company Metallic paper before attaching to the white card base. To create the flower section I used my long rectangle scalloped Nestibility on the water color paper. I gold embossed the Violet Border stamp and then colored with H2Os using a water color brush. I used star dust Stickles in the center. The ribbon is from Michaels and of course I used my Bow Easy.
I love the inside. I made 2 Foliage Frames embossed then used the Moonlight White again to highlight. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado.

I used only the center section of the violet border to create the center image.I am sending this to a lady who passed away on Tuesday. I think her family will appreciate it.
I heard nothing but groans this morning ...nobody wanted to go to work...yesterday felt like Saturday and they wanted to treat today like Sunday! Another great day to be retired. Last night was a total mess. The dogs all....12 of them (I included the pups) reacted to the fireworks . I never had so many dogs that wanted to sit on my lap or howl in my life. The older dogs have never liked them but they managed to teach this to the little pups as well. The only calm dog was the Mom...she just listened and kept on feeding. The fireworks were great but 30 minutes is a long time to be howled at. Love dogs but hate fireworks.
Must go take the dogs out so have a great day and have some stamping fun.

Gorgeous image and card, Heather! I would so love to have that particular frame die. There are altogether too many things on my wish list!
