TSOT272 Sympathy

Happy Tuesday, all!  I missed posting yesterday; hope you had a fabulous weekend!  It's time for another Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch!  Today the optional theme is Summer Fun, but I went in a different direction!  Here's the sketch:

Since I had been hoarding these beautiful Timeless Elegance papers (and now they're gone, sadly!), I thought it would be nice to highlight the gorgeous florals and make these roses the centerpiece of my card:

Once I decided what to do with the papers, the rest was easy!  I stamped some images from Butterfly Basics and Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Smoky Slate on the corners of my 4 1/4" square Very Vanilla card:  

In the opposite corner, I added some organdy flowers that I lightly dabbed with glue & Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

Finally I added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes....never like needing sympathy cards, but they're a fact of life!  I hope you'll play along with this pretty sketch and be sure to check out what the TSOT team did on their blog!  Or you can stop over at our Facebook page too!  Have fun!

Cassidy earned some tickets to a Wilmington (DE) Blue Rocks baseball game through a reading program!  Although the day was cloudy, she still had fun!  Here she is getting her photo taken with Rocky:

Goofing around with her cousin Trent:

And she crashed on the way home!  

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by!
