Not a Valentine Card


Happy Valentine's Day and I hope everyone has a great day!

This is a CAS sympathy card I made just to have "on hand". We never know when we'll need this type of card. The sketch I used is an older one from Clean and Simple Stamping. I used some Pretty in Pink card stock and I don't care what I do, I can never get that to photograph good. It always looks a little "washed out" or something...never can get that true color - and it's such a pretty color. Oh well......The bird was made using a SU punch and after punching the wing I embossed it with the Swirls embossing folder (and no, I've never seen a blue bird with pink wings - but it looked good on the card)!

This is a short post today - but stayed tuned - because I have another card to post tomorrow and another one on Wednesday!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by...........

Great sympathy card - and so smart to have it on hand. Those are so difficult to make "last minute".

What a sweet sympathy card, and I like the pink wings on the bluebird! I always have trouble getting a true green color in my photos, but your pretty in pink looks fine to me!

This is such a nice sympathy card - so soft and pretty - lovely colours.

This is beautiful, Lynn. I think the color photographed very well, but I know what you mean about some colors being tougher then others. The design is just lovely and I really like the soft accents, like the embossig on the wing and the delicate lace. :)
