this is a little odd for me...I don't normally as a rule create Sympathy cards unless a situation arrises that would require one...I just don't feel right necessarily having a stockpile of sympathy cards just hanging about...But I just so happened to have this beautiful Verve stamp set that is a Sympathy stamp set (Forever in our Hearts)...
The main purpose of this post is actually for this weeks Fresh Batch challenge over with Stamps and Smiles. Great sketch to play with...a little different for me...but then again so is the type of card! I'm wayyyyy outside of my box today!

Supplies: Cardstock: DCWV, Bazzil; Stamp: Verve; Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain; Embossing Powder: Distress Embossing Powder - Walnut Stain; Stickles: Distress Stickles - Peeled Paint; Ribbon and Brads unknown


  1. Great sympathy card Lesley! I love how you added those brads to make a corner. I will put that idea in my "gotta case" file:)) Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Lesley this is beautiful I just love the brads you used in the corners. (you could also submit it to, we're doing things in 3's over there). Thank you for playing with The Fresh Batch this week.
