The Paper Players Challenge #123 - Jaydee's Sketch

This week Jaydee is hosting at The Paper Players & has provided this sweet sketch that has so many possibilities:-

Sadly, I needed to make a sympathy card, so have used both the central panel & the banner to house the sentiment:-

I've incorporated a triple floral grouping by way of the 3D blooms.  These have been punched with the itty bitty flower punch, scrunched up & then the layers of paper have been separated to form the blossoms.  A small pearl has been added to the centre of each.

The bookplate has been raised on dimensionals & finished off with pearl trimmings.


Did you know The Paper Players are looking for a new batch of Guest Designers to join them for the next six months?  You can find all the details, as well as links to the Design Team's projects here at The Paper Players site.  Hope you can join us this week!  :)

I'm sorry you were in need of a sympathy card :(
This one is very soothing and I'm sure that it was much appreciated.
Thanks for the reminder about the itty bitty flower punch. I must dig mine out! They make such cute little flowers!

Great, simple sympathy card. I'm pinning it for future case-ing!

This is lovely sympathy card, Helen. The colors are soft and serene and the details simple and sweet. Just the perfect balance for this type of card. I'm sorry you needed to make it but I am sure it was much appreciated. ((hugs))

Beautiful,Helen. I love the way you've stamped the sentiment, and the tiny flowers are such a sweet touch.

So sad that you needed a sympathy card, but this one will certainly bring some solace to the family...I love the blues as well as those sweet little flowers!

This is beautiful Helen. I'm sure it would have been well received, not only for the beautiful verse & sentiment but also because it was made with love.

Sympathy cards are always difficult to make but you have created a lovely card - I like the way you've combined the two sentiments using that centre panel.
