Sympathy Card in Pink

Happy Monday, everyone! Back to the grind today! Today I'd like to share a sympathy card which I made for my hubby's grandmother, since her brother passed away a few days ago. Her favorite color is pink, so without even knowing what I was going to make, I automatically grabbed some Pink Pirouette cardstock and then checked out some challenges.

This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Linda aka 'Holstein'....yay, Linda! I'm a bit embarrassed because when I chose the card to case, I did not notice that it was a SCS sketch challenge card and not her original design, so the challenge police might come after me...oops! I'm going to post it anyway though, since Linda is so awesome and I just wanted to make sure she receives extra kudos! The reason I chose this gorgeous card was because of the pink, the ribbons, and the embossing....the sketch was just a plus, so there! :)

I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
The Pink Elephant Challenge: use your favorite color...along with Grandma, my fave color is also pink!;
Crafty Cardmakers: No floral embellishments;
Die Cut Dreams: Sympathy Card;
Stampin Sisters In Christ: Use something new ....the beautiful lace was sent to me by a dear friend...isn't it yummy?!;
ODBD Shining the Light Challenge: WINTER word play...W=white, I=inked, E=embossed, R=ribbon.

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Mini Tags 3';
Cardstock: SU Pink Pirouette and Whisper White;
Ink: Stazon Jet Black and SU Pink Pirouette (sponging);
Accessories: CB Damask EF, May Arts Satin Ribbon, Crocheted Lace (unknown.....RAK), Spooled Pearls by 'Modern Romance', 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist, MS Arch Lattice Border Punch, Circle Punch, foam tape, Zva Creative Pearl Brad, sponge dauber, Bow Easy.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed week!
