Just Us Girls #313 WORD WEEK

Sue has the challenge for us this week and the word she's chosen is Sympathy.  They are the cards we don't really want to make but, all too often, seem to need.   It's also World Cardmaking Day, so besides showing this card, I'm hoping to make at least one other card in honor of our great hobby!


Here's my card for the challenge:
I fully admit to being in a creative drought at the moment and to CASEing Jan Tink for this card! Here's the link to her blog post:  THINKING OF YOU I love that she has purple in her card. I just wasn't sure about using it since my card is going to a friend who has lost her husband. I have a really juicy Black Archival ink pad so I glued the cloud to the card base and stamped the tree direct to paper.  I was pleased at how well it worked.  My cloud die is from Papertrey Ink.  My Hills are cut from dies by My Favorite Things from various Stampin' Up and PTI designmer papers.  I cut some 5,5 inch papers and then matched them up the way I wanted them to look on the card, glued them together and then trimmed off the edges to fit the 4.5 inch card front.  The piece was then too think to go into my corner punch so It is glued to the card front and then I hand-trimmed the corners.  The finial step was to sponge the edges-vintae photo distress ink.  The sentiment has two parts so I colored the part I wanted with a water color (not copic) marker, huffed on it and stamped it to the card front.
Thanks for looking today!  We sure hope you'll join in our challenge this week and Happy Worlk Cardmaking Day!!
