TSOT414 Seaside Sympathy

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Sadly, I needed a sympathy card this week, and the Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge had a nice sketch:

Originally, I had different papers and colors put together for this, but when I started stamping the shells from Seaside Notions, I went in a different direction, choosing Petal Pink and Crumb Cake:

I stamped the shells and used a sponge dauber to color each one lightly (easy to do!) and fussy-cut them, layering them on a stitched square on which was stamped the coral and the little speckles, then I added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings:

I saved the ribbon from the gift my friend Wendy made and used it for a little accent, along with a wee piece of burlap ribbon and some metallic pearls:

I forgot to photograph the inside, but I used a sentiment from the new Here's A Card; it has lots of nice ones to choose from!  

Thanks for popping in today....if you're having a heat wave like we are, relax and drink lots of water, and stay COOL!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

Oh so pretty, LeAnne! Love the soft colors and those beautiful seashells! I have this set coming and cannot wait to play with it! The ribbon and burlap add texture and using the 2 different DSP's was a brilliant idea! Love it! Looks like the kids are enjoying the heatwave! I will be hibernating in the AC until cooler air comes! TFS and stay cool! :)
