Sisterhood of Crafters - Any Occasion

Hello dear friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over

 Our hostess today is ME and the theme I've chosen is:

Here's what I have to share ...
 Sad as it is, I seem to be in need of more sympathy cards lately.
So when I was watching a video recently by Jennifer McGuire, I thought this technique
would make for a beautiful yet simple sympathy design.  What do you think?
 I've used masking medium, Tim Holtz distress inks and a couple of stamps ... that's IT!

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
My 'sistahs' have created some fabulous creations to help inspire you ... 
be sure to pop over and check them out!

 See you there!

As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!

  5. It has been awhile since I have done this type of stamping, Darlene, and I really appreciate your sharing this card with us! Very elegant and heartfelt!!

  6. It's gorgeous, Darlene! Me being CAS-challenged haha, I would have made the whole thing bigger but that's because I get a nervous tick any time I see white space, heehee. You've rocked this! xox

  7. Great card and wonderful technique! I really need to try this one. I am terrible at CAS cards but I will give it a go. Have a great week, Darlene!

  10. I do find the older I get the more I need too, so nice to have them on hand, I need to do that myself. I so love the colors in your background and that stamp is just lovely with it!

  11. Beautiful card, Darlene! Love the colours and how you combined a few stamps to create your foliage focal image.
