Sympathy

Hello,
 
I started a Christmas card at the beginning of the week but first I was distracted by an inspiration photo and now by a colour.  The CASology challenge is a colour - brown.  I made a card Silhouette, earlier this year, using a brown colour scheme and it came together very easily. 
Supplies:  White and brown card, Judikins image, PTI sentiment, Distress inkpad, Kaiser pearls.
 
I am going to try to make a few sympathy cards as I  don't have any.  The day I was to leave on my vacation my mother-in-law asked for a sympathy card.  What a bustle but I managed to do it.  This card will be a start as brown lends itself to this sentiment.

Silver Christmas Tree.

Hello,

I went to a Craft Show in September and I bought three Penny Black stamps.  Two of them were Christmas stamps, a wreath and a tree.  Both are fairly simple stamps but I have already made a few cards using both stamps.  I have become interested in simply trying  different colour combinations.  Tonight I have used the Christmas Tree.
Supplies:  Black card, Penny Black image, StampIt sentiment, VersaMark inkpad, Hero Arts embossing powder, Kaiser rhinestones and Pearls.

Variation

Hello,

I am trying another variation on the wreath card.
Supplies:  White and green card, Hero Arts background, Penny Black image, Arte Stamp sentiment, Distress inkpad, Kaiser rhinestone and a ribbon.

In reality the colours look better and I like the colour combination but I think the background swamps the image.

The wreath is a new stamp that has given me lots of ideas, some of which just haven't worked.  One I haven't tried yet is a kraft card using the image.  Too late now I am about to be picked up to go to Tullarmarine airport.  I will be flying out later this afternoon.  So exciting!  Although by the time you read this post it will be the last day of my trip

It really doesn't look like the ad but I retained the colours and the cityscape.

Get Well

Hello,

Recently LIM had a one layer get well challenge and I just couldn't get it to work.  I was trying to add a drawn frame around the image and every time something went wrong.  Eventually I made this card but didn't post it because it wasn't a one layer.  At present I am holidaying in Europe so I thought this was a good time to post this card.

Supplies:  White and green card, Tiffany Doodles image, Stampin' Up sentiment and Lyra pencils.
