Thinking of you in deepest sympathy

This is for the sketch on Try stamping - or not - on Tuesday 369:

I followed the option of 'scrap busting' - all pieces cut from offcuts that were around on my desk from making earlier cards, mounted on to a purple card base. The sentiment square was upcycled from an old card - lace added from stash - not enough to go all the way across, so, still using up scraps, a piece either side and nobody would know it wasn't one piece. The sentiment square, mounted on another scrap has foam pads top and bottom to raise a bit from the lace.

This is also for:

  1. YOur snippets made such a lovely and serene sympathy card. The design is so pretty and I like the way you've added the square sentiment in the manner you did. The delicate lace adds more 'pretty' to this wonderful card. TFS

  2. Clever solution to your scrap piece not being long enough, Hazel! It's so well aligned that no one would notice. Great job! Love all the shades of purplish colors, too! Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday this week! -Donna

  5. Great card Hazel and that's a lovely trick with the lace. Must remember to use that one more often for some of my smaller bits and pieces of strips!
