With Sympathy- Two Challenges!

Hi Stampers! 
I wanted to create another quick and easy card for the Pals Paper Arts PPA85  Sketch Challenge (see http://www.palspaperarts.com/ ) and decided to use the colors from this week’s Just Add Ink JAI60 Challenge (see http://just-add-ink.blogspot.com/ ).  Don’t forget to check out their sites for the inspiration from the Design Teams and the many other talented artists !   Since I still had the Nature Walk set out, I decided to use this one again (I hope you are not growing too tired of this set- if you have not guessed yet, it is one of my favorites:-))

To create this card:
Using the SU! Crumb Cake marker, ink up the floral image and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Repeat the process using the “stamping off” technique.  Color the images with Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive markers and sponge the edges with Crumb Cake.  It is hard to see in the photo, but use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Crumb Cake marker to add additional distressing.
Use the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper EF and the Square Lattice EF to emboss the Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake layers.  Punch the edge of the Crumb Cake using the Eyelet Border Punch.
Layer onto Old Olive, add the 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon and pearls.  Add the tag sentiment along with the Vintage Brad to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Nature Walk, Teeny Tiny Wishes
 Ink:  SU! Markers-Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry
Cardstock:   Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry¸Whisper White
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice and Vintage Wallpaper EF, XL Tag, Eyelet Border and Pinking Hearts Border Punches, Sponge Daubers, Color Spritzer Tool,  5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Vintage Brad
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

Absolutely beautiful, Julie. The use of the Pinking Hearts punch on the tag is genius.
