I hate it when I need a sympathy card and don’t have one ready. Yesterday, I decided to work ahead a bit. As I looked through my stamp sets, I realized I had not used the perfectly wonderful, Lasting Lily. As if the stamp set itself were not wonderful enough, I got it for FREE. Lasting Lily is one of the choices for Sale-A-Bration. More on that later.

Of course, you could easily use a birthday sentiment or Thank You or thinking of you. Any of those would work well.

I also made this card for this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge. Just click on the image below to go to the site and see all of the wonderful cards made with this great sketch.

Design Notes for Lasting Lily Card:

The sketch on the challenge featured an oval. Well, I liked that but wanted to change the orientation. I thought the flower would look better. The frame around the flower is from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. Such great paper – one side is white, the other side is cream color.

I used a few drops of the Mossy Meadow Ink Refill and an Aqua Painter to add some color to the background. The layer behind the flower is some paper from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper package.

The show stopper for this card is the flower. Don’t you love the way that flower has some real texture?  This stamp set has stamps that are “Distinktive”. That is, they have a special texture to give a more realistic look.
