With Sympathy…


Hello friends, It’s time again for a new challenge over at Just Us Girls.  It just so happens to be Photo Week and let me explain where my eyes were drawn to on this photo, as there is a lot to look at.

I loved the bold white mats around each of the pictures on the wall, so I decided to put a white open frame on my card. I took the bold bright yellow couch as my color choice for my flower, next I noticed the pink florals in the vase next to the couch and picked out my DP and last but not least I decided to incorporate black on my card base from the black and white striped rug. Now that it is finished, I think the vellum leaves do a nice job expressing the light cascading though the window….okay…I might be stretching it a tad! LOL  The butterfly, oval die and sentiment is SU, The Flower die is from SU- Rose Garden set, the vellum leaves are a huge die from Sizzix.

I am also entering this card over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!

I hope you will drop by JUGS this week and check out the DT’s cards and our fabulous Guest Cathymac, and join us too.

Take care, Nanc’
