Simply Sketched Sneak Peak Sympathy Card

Hi stampers, oh isn't this just beautiful? This Forsythia is right in my Mom's front yard of her condo where I have been staying. I wake up and see it every day and say "Oh Lord, thanks you for all the beautiful things you have created." Ah the wonders of Spring. I am desperately looking for some place to rent to live in and wow it is exhausting too. I may have found something. I hope. I have about 15 days to find it and move out. Then head up north maybe to get some of my furniture. Not sure yet. I have been so busy with cleaning out my Mom's condo and last weekend my family was here to get what they could get out that they wanted. 

I stamped this card last week when I got to order from the new Annual Catalog. Yes, just one of the perks from being a Stampin' UP! Demonstrator. I thought it was so cute. My sister needed some Sympathy cards so I stamped some for her and this was one that I just love how it turned out so I thought I would share with you today.  I used a new Embossing Folder called Modern Mosaic and then there is the matching Mosaic Punch that I just punched out my card base color Not Quite Navy Card Stock. My embossed layer is one of the new In  Colors called Baked Brown Sugar and I love love love the color. The other new item is the darling Very Vintage Designer Buttons that I layered onto the Mosaic Punch out and I strung Linen Thread through it. I cut out my images with the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I used my markers direct on my stamp to color the images and greetings. Let me know what you think, will you? 

Here are the details: 
Stamp Set: Simply Sketched
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla
Inks: Not Quite Navy Marker and Ink Pad, Soft Suede Marker
Tools And Accessories: Big Shot, Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder(Sneak Peak), Apothecary Accents Framelits, Mosaic Punch(Sneak Peak), Victoria Crochet Trim Ribbon, Very Vintage Designer Buttons(Sneak Peak),  Linen Thread, Sponge, Dimensionals.
