Tagged!

This week at Dutch Dare is winged things!
That can be many things.
A bird, a plane... (superman does not have wings, sorry), but butterflies and other insects
do.  You get the picture. Come join us
this week with anything with wings.

I needed to make a very quick sympathy
card and remembered I had these
pre-made card bases from K&Co.
This tag was perfect! I also had a
scrapbook kit in the same pattern with
paper and embellishments.
This was one of those cards that
came together nicely and I am actually
pleased with the results!
Love when that happens!!
 Side View
Love that ribbon, but it was difficult
to work with!! I fiddled with both
bows FOREVER and still was not able
to get it quite right! It is the same 
brand I often used, but this color
must be a different fabric.
 Close Up of butterfly
Sentiment done on computer
 Inside- (Holes on tag run through and tied
with ribbon)
 Inside- Top- 3D Flower Embellishment
Matched paper pattern perfectly!
Sentiment- Stamped
 Inside- Bottom

Very pretty, Stacey!
Love, that you used lilac as a darker color - black on sympathy cards is awful...
Have a great day!

Sympathy cards are always so very hard for me to make! This is beautiful and very comforting!

Dorcas said...

Superman doesn't have wings?? Good grief, I'm not impressed at all then! lol
Beautiful card Stacey, we've all missed your cards but I know youve been busy with about 1000 scrapbook pages in the interval. This is really pretty. As always, you have enough elements to make a whole card set but that's just how thoroughly you make a good job fantastic :-)
Love the tag shape, how cool is that!

Stacey, this is so beautiful! I love the colors and it is so feminine and romantic. I'm sure the recipient will love the card. It's always hard to make these type cards, but I'm sure you're thoughtfulness will be appreciated. I tried to comment early this morning, but blogger was not working. hugs, dj

Since the blogger issue erased my post and comments I had a few saved in my e-mails from yesterday:
