Perfect Sentiment Challenge No 1

My friend Jennipher has started a new blog challenge called Perfect Sentiments Challenge here  I hope you all go check it out.  It's going to be a lot of fun.  I had time this week to play around a little bit and made this card for the challenge.  The idea was to make a sympathy card (you know you never have one of these when you need it).  But the twist was to use some lace on your card.

First, I inked up my stamp (SU Close As A Memory - I love this stamp set) with my SU Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Markers which I stamped on watercolor paper.  I then spritzed it using Gold Glimmer Mist.  It's hard to see the shimmer in the photo, but it looks really pretty IRL.  I cut that out with my Marvy circle punch and adhered it to a scallop circle (cut with my Nestabilities) from a piece of dp from SU Linen Prints.  I added some small bling to the flowers to pop them out a bit.

The base of the card is SU Peach Parfait (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) over which I layered another piece of SU Linen Prints (4 x 5 1/4) and put a piece of lace (Recollections) over it and under the image layer.  I then stamped the sentiment (also from Close as a Memory) onto SU Very Vanilla c/s and layered it onto a piece of Peach Parfait and then added a little bling dot to it. and layered it on the top of the card.

I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
