So Sorry for your Loss

Hello again!  I have a card to share that I created for a coworker, who's grandmother passed away.  I needed it to be fairly simple and quick, as I wanted to be able to give it to her right away.  Die cuts and a pretty floral set from PTI did the trick.

When I don't have a specific project to work on, I stamp a variety of patterns and colors for backgrounds and keep them in a basket on my craft desk.  The blue polka dot was pretty easy to do, in my Tim Holtz stamp platform.  I have the small MISTI and it works great for smaller things like the flowers, but for background stamping, I like the Platform. 

Yes, I am totally addicted to the Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies, I use them on nearly every card.  Since I don't sew on my cards anymore, these work perfectly!  I stamped the flowers from PTI's Floral Sketches on Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock using PTI Melon Berry and Berry Sorbet, then added a little water to the tops for a softer look.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

I could have sworn those polka dots were designer paper! Great idea to have backgrounds on hand. I always say I want to sit and do a bunch of watercolor backgrounds, but never get around to it. Always in a hurry to get a specific card done. This one is gorgeous and so nice to not have to color every. single. card. Love the die cuts you used and, yes, I love my Wonky Stitched dies, too. I still stitch sometimes, but not as often. Your card is just so pretty!
