Hi, it's a long weekend here in Australia to celebrate the Queen's birthday.
I'm so looking forward to the break. No special plans, just hoping to catch up on some sewing and card making.
I needed a male sympathy card and saw this gorgeous card on pinterest. I've used the image for happy occasions but hadn't thought to use it on a sympathy card, so thank you for the inspiration Blindstamper at Splitcoaststampers.
I'm linking up to a few challenges.
Inkspirational has a clean and simple theme, and
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has a father's day or masculine theme.
I masked the white border and inked the panel in a few blue distress inks. I'm always amazed at the clean area that appears when you lift up a mask. I think it fits the theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is magic.
Penny Black Dreamy stamp; distress inks; sentiment sticker.
Thanks for visiting,
A beautiful card Cathy, your background is amazing with stunning colours, and just perfect for a sympathy card.
