Heartfelt Wishes

I was very happy when I saw this doily on the Artiste cartridge handbook.  It is the very first button!  Who doesn't like doily?  It is fabulous, elegant, versatile and so popular right now.  I just can't resist using more of it in my cards and layouts.

I saw this sketch on Mojo Monday and I immediately saw a doily in my card:

Then I saw that Heart 2 Heart challenge asks us to make a sympathy card.  The color combo came to my head almost immediately.  I then put together my sympathy card like this:

Even though I love the doily from the Artiste cartridge, I must also give credit to her big sister Art Philosophy cartridge because the Bamboo bracket square and the Twilight Rectangle were cut by it.  The stamp set used is Baroque Borders, the Stamp of the Month of this month.  I've added some Sparkles Flourishes to replace the little banner to finish the card.  I'm quite happy with this end product, hope you like it too.

Happy crafting!


  1. excellent color combinations and layering. i also like the subtlety of the ribbon, which makes the card more presentable and the content more stand-out.

  2. gorgeous, love your take on the sketch
