Victorian Sympathy Card

 So, this card is soooo far out of my comfort zone!  I found an old Mojo Monday sketch I liked.  You can see it HERE.  And I was stamping at my friend Karen's house, and she had these dies and stamp set, which I never ordered because they were really not me!  But I thought the shape would be good for this sketch.  I also had to swap her for a piece of this color CS, Summer Starfruit, because I didn't order it because I didn't like it LOL!  But I liked the Sycamore Street DP so I wanted to use it.  This card is the final result, and I like how it turned out.  I REALLY like the font on the sentiment set, so I'll probably have to order that.  THEN, because it's meant to fit in that space there, should I order the stamp set, in which case I'll have to order the dies too?!?  They are devious, that SU crowd LOL!

Colors are Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, and Whisper White.  In fact I think everything is current SU--how about that?!  Thanks for taking a look--have a great day!

LOL;) I am totally on a budget this year, I know what su parties do to your pocket book.

I love the creation, Amy.

I think it is hard to pick a good color for Sympathy cards and this color looks good. :))I was quite tempted by a bunch of SU items, but my budget really stopped me. but that is fine, I guess I can really use more of my stash.
