Sharing In Your Sorrow

Good Morning scrappers!
Today I made a sympathy card for a challenge over at sb.com and I also used a sketch from
 "stuck on u sketches" 
It is great sketch because there are endless possibilities. This is their very first card sketch, so im excited to be part of the ground floor. Here is the sketch:


 I made a sympathy card, since I don't have any in my stash and unfortunately when you need one that making one quickly can be hard. :(
I decided to go with green, cream and white. For some reason to me the colors feel soothing to me? 
This is a 4 x 6 card, it is a bit smaller than I usually make because it is hard for me to put all the little details that I want on a card. I didnt want to add flowers today...weird huh? 
I went with the little birds from Heartfelt Creations, tiny branches and some ribbons.


I've been trying to layer some of my cards with multiple diecuts to change it up a bit.


I finished off the card with a bit of pearls.


Hope you have a great Monday!
Thanks for stopping by...
Hugs

Wow, Lisa! First I am so honored that you played along with our first ever Card challenge. You know I love your work! The color scheme is so great for any occasion but perfect for a sympathy card. I am loving that multiple die cut look .. the lace, the pearls, the birds. Over the top gorgeous! Hope you have a fantastic week! Sandi

Lisa this is gorgeous! I love all the layering you used, your colors, and the HC branches. So many lovely little details. It's so hard for me not to use flowers on anything also..but you sure did make it work!
