So sorry to say I found myself in need of a sympathy card this week. A Dear friend of ours passed away unexpectedly and I created this for his Sweet Wonderful Girlfriend.. My heart just breaks for her, they were so Wonderful together and Loved each other Very much. He was a sailor so I thought the image very appropriate, and the soft colors remind me of her, so this was a good match, much like their own relationship..
My SNSS image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto a square of Cosmo Cricket Love Notes dp and I added a touch of shading with Vintage photo distress ink around the edges. All my mats and BG layers were created with ivory CS and more dp's from Cosmo Cricket's Love notes collection. To finish it all up I just stamped my I/O Sentiment directly onto my BG.. I Kept this one Very CAS to let the image and Pretty colors do the talking..
Here are the Beautiful CR84FN Colors...
