Serendipitous Sympathy

Welcome

I had a good day in the studio yesterday afternoon, and this is one of the results.


I started with some squares that I had made using a technique called Serendipity Squares and mounted them on the violet base card.


The base card was embossed with a music embossing folder, and then sponged it lightly with some violet ink.


The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto green card, and added under the side of the decorative panel.



The final detail was a wee tad of gold ribbon and a bow.


This is a close up of the detail of a panel and the bow.


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed

Very pretty indeed! Love the extra touches, like the little tab with the embossed sentiment and the sponged violet onto the embossed background panel.
