With Sympathy

Have you missed me??? I took off for a weekend in Hot Springs, Arkansas with my best friend! Girl time...what could be better? We shopped till we dropped, ate way too much really good food, and I had my very first gelato! Ummmm....it was SO GOOD!!! One more thing to mark off of my bucket list! LOL!


The main image on my card today uses the JustRite Stampers Beautiful Day stamp set. It was watercolored using Tombow Markers . The layer behind the flower is JustRite's Fancy Labels cling mount set. I stamped it on Iced Amethyst Prismatics cardstock using Purple Hydrangea VersaMagic Ink then cut and embossed with Labels Thirteen Nestabilities . (Sorry for the photos...it's very cloudy here today.)

The sentiment is from the JustRite Fancy Tags cling mount set. It was framed with a border from the same set, then adhered to a tag cut and embossed with the JustRite Nested Frame Custom Dies set.

All cardstock is from the Prism Papers Amethyst Paper Trio . The designer paper is Basic Grey Kioshi.

Be SURE to join The Dream Team and some VERY special guests for a Stamper's Dream blog hop we're having this Thursday. There are Dreamy Treats involved, too! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Gorgeous card Michelle! I haven't been sure about the Fancy Labels ( a bit fussy for my style) but you have convinced me that they are indeed beautiful used in the right way! Oh dear, another set for my wish list.....

Your weekend sounds a great treat, and I bet you had fun as well :)
