Charisma #45 - Sympathy

It's a sad fact that we all find ourselves having to make a sympathy card from time to time, but needs must, so this week that is our challenge theme at Charisma.

Our lovely sponsor this week is Softpencil designs and they are offering a fab $15 voucher to one lucky winner to spend at their website!


For my card, I've made a brayered background with three different shades of Silkies to look like a sunset, and stamped dandelion clocks over the top in black ink. The card base is made with a gorgeous textured linen card (which hasnt shown up very well in my pics!) and the sentiment is by Personal Impressions.

Thanks for looking, be sure to visit Charisma Cardz to see the rest of the DTs work!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Burtonesque Dolls - Anything goes
Crafty Emmas - Autumn (colours)
Crazy 4 Challenges - Square Cards
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

I really like your sympathy card too, Gemm. The colours put me in mind of the sunset of life and the fragile blossoms also mimic the fragility of life. Lovely. Warmest wishes, Lesley
