PPA135 & PCS97


I’ve made a sympathy card today for the family of a friend from church.  George worked on a horse farm for years and loved anything to do with nature and the outdoors.  I used the Pals Paper Arts sketch 135 as well as a theme of checks or gingham from Papercraft Star for my clean and simple card today:



I used some retired SU hostess pack papers and an image from Countryside for my main panel.  Lots of sponging with Crumb Cake gave it a rustic look, and a new Designer Naturals button teamed up with some Linen Thread “tied” it all together…without looking too feminine, I hope!


So now we’re off to the funeral!  Have a blessed day—if you have any questions, shoot me an email!
