Blooming With Kindness Sympathy for colourq

Happy Thursday night stampers. Wowza, I was tired tonight after working 9-1/2 hours on my feet with no break. Absolutely ridiculous place to work and actually illegal also, not to have breaks. I came home and had to take a nap. I didn't get home till almost 7. Oh well, I pray my house sells soon so I can quit. I am so excited about moving back to the Quad Cities. Pray Pray Pray!

Here is a card I made for the colourq challenge colors as long as I had to stamp some Sympathy cards for Fall Fest I stamped it so I could put it in a challenge. I used all the colors but it looks like I didn't use the black but it was my stem and sponging around the die cut for the flower. I used the Lacy Brocade EF and the stamped the flower in Tempting Turquoise and then again and another piece of Card Stock and stamped in Pumpkin Pie. I cut it out with a Scallop Circle Punch and popped it up with dimensionals. I die cut the Whisper White Card stock with the Window Frames Collection Framelits and then cut it straight down on my paper cutter to make it mimic a church window. I sponged around it with Black and Pumpkin Pie. I made a banner and added a Round Designer Ribbon Slide and used some Taffeta Ribbon that is probably discontinued in Gray. That is all there is to it. Pretty easy really!

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Loving Thoughts, Blooming with Kindness
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie
Tools: Big Shot, Window Frames Collection Framelits, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Round Designer Ribbon Slides, Sponge, Dimensionals. 
I am tired and going to bed as I work the early shift tomorrow. Totally pooped out and have to still get some things ready for Fall Fest Saturday. YIKES! Thanks for stopping by. Hugs Bev
