Sympathy Card

I try and keep a supply of cards on hand so that if I need something quick I can grab one instead of having to go to the store. Except with sympathy cards for some reason. I usually wait until I need one to make one of these. I generally make them pretty simple. A friend of ours from church lost her Mom this week so I needed to make a card to send to her family. The "pearls" down the left side of the card aren't really pearls, I used Tulip dimensional Pearl paint in Snow White. That paint dries fairly quick and gives me the ability to create any size that I need. It is actually fabric paint, but when I saw that it was dimensional, I decided to give it a try. Not bad, I got a good size bottle for, I think, $1.39 and it comes in several colors. The stamp is from SU and was stamped with CTMH Garden Green and Petal. The sentiment stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly and was stamped with the Garden Green ink also. Paper is DCWV. Thanks for stopping by tonight!
