With Heartfelt Sympathy

Hello friends,
Good news- I can finally hear out of my right ear again. The ear medicine the doctor gave me finally started kicking in :) I haven't been feeling so great so I haven't been up to anything crafty lately. But I did have a sympathy card to make for one of my fellow teachers who lost his Dad earlier this week.
Here it is:
I really tried to keep it simple ---> emphasis on the "simple." Ok, so maybe it's not quite a CAS card, but it's pretty simple in my book :) The cut out detail was achieved with a MS anywhere punch called Caning Pattern. It was a little difficult to get every single one to perfectly match the one next to it, but I really liked the design it creates. The papers are K& Company Julianne. I added a bow, pearls, my Viva pen, & a flower from Recollections. See pretty simple!

I have a big wedding to go to this weekend for a good friend of mine & I've had this crazy idea swirling in my head for her card. Now, I just need some time to work on it before Saturday! Yikes!

Thanks so much for peeking!
Just a couple more sleeps & hurray it's the weekend!
Gotta Go!

    On a lighter note, I'm glad that your ear is getting better!!

  5. So elegant! I love the way you punched the background, it's stunning. Your coworker will love it, beautifully done!

    Sorry you are still feeling under the weather, that stinks! Hope you feel better soon!

    They stopped the Magnolia Christmas monthly hop, bummer. I should really still try to do one every month, I know I'll regret how lazy I've been come December!

  6. Glad the medicine is finally starting to work. Hope you are feeling better before the wedding.

    Your sympathy card is absolutely stunning (is that appropriate to say for the sad occasion?)! The punched layer, pearls, & bow--Wow!

  7. This card is simply beautiful, thank you for the inspiration

  8. So sorry that you've been suffering from this nasty virus Karli. Seems like many people have a "bug" right now. Hope you'll be feeling better very soon.
    This card is just so exquisite. I just love the punched paper. It is divine. How kind of you to make a sympathy card when you aren't well. Sounds like wonderful you for sure!

  9. The stamped BG is just wonderful! I love the addition of pearls to embellish it- I am with you about the challenge getting this punch lined up- amazing job! Love the bow and gorgeous flower. Sorry it is for a sad occasion.... So glad your ear is improving- ear infections are so painful!

  10. Hi Karli,
    sorry, that it is for such a sad occasion, but you did an excellent job!!
