Just Us Girls #313 - Word Week

It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and Sue chose "sympathy" as the word.  As it turns out, I'm in need of a sympathy card.  I never have these on hand, and they are never on my list of cards to make.
I like simpler designs for sympathy cards, so I chose this floral vine stamp.  I popped up a few of the flowers and added some star dust stickles to them.  At first I left the bottom two thirds of the card untouched, but I just couldn't leave it blank!  Too much white space for me!  So I stamped part of the vine and flowers on the bottom corner.  Much better (IMHO).

This sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch was perfect for my card.

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Melissa, on the JUGs blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
