CTMH Sympathy card

Hello everyone, boy I am so far behind on posting on my blog.  Life has just been crazy around here, I do manage to get a card done here and then but just haven't posted them on my blog.
So here is a card I made using some of the papers that I got in my Close to my Heart consultant kit.  I got the Pemberley Workshop on the go kit as an add on and I love the papers, inks and stamps that came in this kit.
The stamp is one of the stamps that come in the Pemberley Workshop kit.  I stamped it tone on tone with the Indian Corn blue ink pad then hand cut it out. I stamped and cut it twice so I could pop dot it to give it some dimension.  All the papers are from the Pemberly Kit, love the blues and browns.  I cut the bottom border using the Elegant Edges cartridge then covered it with Crackle Accents.   The "with sympathy" I cut using the Jasmine cartridge.  It is always nice to have a few sympathy cards on hand because it seems so hard to make them when you actually need them.
Here is a closer look at the border cut.
I added a few red pearls to the center of the flower images on the border.

Thanks so much for stopping by and remember there is just a few days left to get in on the CTMH promotion this month where you get the Art Philosophy cartridge for free.  It is such an amazing cartridge and has no many different cuts on it.  For the month of March if you sign up as a consultant for get the consultant kit for $99 and the Art Philosophy cartridge pack for FREE not only do you get the cartridge but you also get 3 sets of coordinating stamps, it is a great deal almost $300 worth of products for $99.  The sweet part of this is that you are not pressured to sell anything you can just sign up to get the deal for yourself and not have to keep up a quota.  If you are still on the fence about getting this cartridge now is the time to go for it, you will not be disappointed, the consultant kit is AWESOME, it is like Christmas when you open your box.  Check out all you get in your kit HERE.

Wow Donna, this is GORGEOUS! I love how you detail cut the flower stamped image. That is so pretty! I saw a card made using that stamp and they just stamped it in black and made it a background paper. It's such a great set! You used it perfectly!!!

That's very pretty, Donna. Your stamp turned out beautiful. And you're right, it's a good thing to have sympathy cards on hand.
