Sympathetic Touch Of Nature

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER #161 - Vera. I was inspired by her FAUX BRADS. I left off the faux brads, hardware, changed the colors and layout. This bird image called to me especially after struggling over Saturday's INSPIRATION CHALLENGE # 222 - Ginko Papers until I found this darling PERCHED BIRD NOTEPAD and then it all fell in place. I needed a sympathy card that I had also been struggling to make but today it came together. My layout is from Saturday's OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Sketch Challenge. My color combo is from Wednesday's COPIC COLOUR CHALLENGE # 54 - BG15, B93, Y21. Love these together. I stamped the image in espresso on Paper Trey Ink vanilla cs then heat embossed clear detail ep. I colored with copics then sponged with creamy caramel then close to cocoa and matted on close to cocoa. My dp is from My Minds Eye paper pack. I used so saffron ribbon and under it is close to cocoa cs trimmed with a Martha Stewart border punch. My sentiment is from Warmest Regards and is stamped in espresso ink. This is for a co-worker who just had her husband of many years pass away. I hope she likes it.
