My Heart is with You!


We have a great fall photo for your inspiration this week at Just Us Girls. I was in the need for a Sympathy card this week so I decided to see if I could pull off combining this challenge with that type of card.  Not sure I love it, but it will have to do. I also used one of my very first Stampin Up stamp sets called Branching Out for this card. The colors are a bit muted as I used Distress Oxide Inks, and kinda wish I hadn’t in hind sight.  I added some splatters and some fun glass beads. The sentiment is from Verve!

Please come on over to JUGS and check out what the team and our Guest Julie did with the photo this week. Take care, Nanc’
