With Sympathy

JustRite has created a new clear stamp set "With Sympathy" that was used for this card.  The  fun part is that I made this for their sketch challenge #066.   All of the paper for the card is from the Authentique "Free Bird" 6 x 6 line which my LSS "Fond Memories" just added.  I did hand cut the edge of the bottom piece to give it a little different effect.  The sentiment was stamped then cut with a Spellbinder circle and distressed with Antique Linen.  Three small pearls were added and then it was mounted on a green cut with Spellbinder Lacey Circles, which was mounted on a burgundy colored paper also cut with the Lacey Circles.  Spellbinder Labels 16 was used to cut two frames from different papers where four pearls helped finish the framing..  A burgundy ribbon and bow with a pearl brad helped finish off the card.  The finished size is 4.25 x 5.5.  A fun card to make and as I look at it can be used for a sympathy card or perhaps you have someone that is a little under the weather or has hard times or needs a pick me upper.  Hope you enjoy
