SR116 Sympathy

 DSCF0023-1
My brother’s MIL passed away yesterday after a valiant battle with cancer and dementia.  She was a wonderful Nanny to over 20 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, and always kept us in stitches with her sense of humor.  She will be greatly missed.  The Stampin Royalty sketch 116 was perfect for my card:
I used some Spice Cake DP and Creative Elements and Established Elegance to make a collage-style creation in Pool Party and Crumb Cake:

I added a couple of scalloped borders, and I fussy cut my panel and added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Some little pearls were my only other embellishment, as my SIL is creeped out by buttons!!  A funny phobia!  And since I stitched both my main panels, my card qualifies for Linda’s Catered Crop this week, too, which is “In Stitches”!  Thanks for visiting today!

    It is absolutely gorgeous - totally the style I love......soft, vintagey with pearls and stitching and a wonderful colour combo.......what could be better. (I know that was a grammatically incorrect sentence - sorry ;) )
    Love the bare feet Cassidy.
