Sweet Sympathy

The time is flying by, and it’s time for another sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  The ridiculously talented Rita Wright created our sketch and I know you’re going to love it.

FMS236-Bird-Builder-PunchI loved the suggested bird idea and since, for some reason, I love birds on Sympathy cards, I decided to go for it.  I felt like my bird needed to be flipped facing the sentiment, though.  The Bird Builder Punch is one of the most important and loved tools in my arsenal.  The sentiment is from Rose Wonder and the flourish is from Timeless Textures.  A little floral patterned paper and the softness of the dotted lace ribbon make this a warm and friendly greeting.

Well, I’m going to get back to enjoying the very best of Florida weather while you go whip up a card to put up in the gallery for me to see!  I really do hope you’ll visit Freshly Made Sketches and play along with Rita’s sketch.  Check out the blog for more inspiration from our Design Team.
