I needed several sympathy cards last week and this is one of them that I created.

 Using the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set, I inked several of the stamps with Versa Mark & sprinkled the images with White Embossing Powder prior to heating it with the Heating Tool.

Sponging both the sentiment & the trees with a Stampin' Sponge & Pool Party Ink gives my card the softness I was hoping to achieve. The "ground" image is sponged with Crumb Cake Ink.  The bird is stamped with Crumb Cake Ink & cut out with the matching Framelits.

The stamped piece is mounted on a Pool Party C.S. Mat.  In addition, the banner sentiment is highlighted with a strategically placed  Pool Party Banner.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Please remember that if you have any questions about my creations, I am only an email away and I so enjoy chatting with my blog readers.
