 Hello everyone,

A new week and a new challenge for Little Red Wagon where our lovely Brenda is hostess with the theme.. Cards that are hard to make - [ sympathy / I'm so sorry etc..]

They are, but sometimes and necessity, and quite a good idea instead of making one, make three and you are then prepared..

I started by stamping the sentiment right in the middle of the card .

Then stamped this beautiful floral from Simon Says stamp, just
along the bottom.. this stamp is huge, so only a small portion here.. 

Stamps beautifully, clean and crisp..

Not sure why, but backed it in cream as the white was annoying
and was so flat, just needed something and the cream was sitting there, so cream it was.

Added a few crystal bubbles here and there..


So come on over HERE  and join in..

Thank you so much for stopping by,
I'll see you tomorrow..

It's a good idea to make several of these 'hard to make' cards at the same time Chrissy. Your design and stamps are beautiful- love the simplicity.

Beautiful! I love that you left the image un-colored too. It's just a very classy looking card. So hard to make sympathy cards but yours is perfect.

These are so beautiful Chrissy! Yes, sympathy are very hard to make for sure, but I sure do love your idea with using a beautiful floral image uncolored and keeping it rather simple especially when in a hurry! Love your trio set! Thanks for the inspiration friend!

Beautiful cards, Chrissy. I like the CAS style. I would have chosen a different background color - something stronger - but that's a matter of taste.
