The Perfect Sentiment Challenge #1 (PSC01)

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all doing well. I am so happy to announce that today marks the launch of The Perfect Sentiment challenge blog! Do you ever tend to make mainly birthday cards? Thinking of you cards? I know I do, that's why I love the Perfect Sentiment challenge blog. Every week you will be given a theme to make a card for. That way you can build up your supply and always have the perfect card on hand, whatever the occasion. This week is about sympathy cards. The challenge is to make a sympathy card and to use lace on your card.

Here is what I created:

Sympathy cards are so hard for me to make. I think it's because no one ever wants to think about making one. For my card, I used a digi image from Glitterbabe and framed it with some lace. I added some ribbon to my card base and then popped my frame up with some foam adhesive. I added some glossy accents after I colored just to give it a little shine and added some pearls in each corner. I wanted to keep my card fairly simple, yet elegant.

This week The Perfect Sentiment challenge blog, is very lucky to have a great sponsor! Stef from Glitterbabe Digi's is sponsoring the challenge and will be giving away a $10 gift card to her store for one lucky winner! Pretty cool huh? So, make sure you head over to The Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog to enter the challenge! You have until Sunday Oct. 9, 2011 (10pm EST) to link up your creation. I look forward to seeing what you create. :)

I fell in love with this when I saw it in our private gallery! You really did a great job with that digi image and that layer of lace is really unique. The green ribbon is such a nice touch and makes it all come together nicely.

Your card is absolutely lovely. Great layout and I love the striking green ribbon.

This is lovely and just right for a sympathy card. I love the soft shine you did on the lily and the way you layered it over the Bible. Love the sentiment also, and that gorgeous pop of green ribbon. Fabulous job!
