With Sympathy

Today I'm sharing one of the cards I designed for the Divine Designs by Nancy Floral Shop in NC.  This has been my go-to quote in recent weeks since losing my mom to Cancer, so I thought it might be comforting to someone else too :)  The warm colors having me thinking about summer and beach trips spent with both my parents...I am so over this long winter!

The quote is printed on vellum, which can be tricky to work with since most adhesives will show up.  I used my ATG and hid the adhesive with the folded over paper on the upper right and with embellishments on the lower left.

You know I love adding dimension to my projects, this time I used a paper rose and chunky buttons, the wood heart with polka dots is my fave :)


What are your favorite card-making embellishments?
