In My Thoughts ~ HSS256

Hello Stampers!  It's time for another Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  A sketch challenge is what's on deck for the next two weeks!  
My card is a mish mosh of older (one REALLY OLD) DSP and a few different stamps, punches and dies.  I even had to pull out a retired color (regal rose) to finish off my stamping.
The floral dsp is super duper old...way back to about 2009 or something.  I'm sure you all have stashes like mine, and what is it with feeling the need to not use the paper?  I have a love/hate relationship with patterned paper packs.  I know so many of you can relate.  I want to use the paper but what if I cut it and it's wrong?  Or what if it's wrong for this project and doesn't work?  gasp!!!!  Anyway, I've resolved to try to use up a bunch of my older paper.  


The other thing on my agenda is sympathy cards. I've needed way to many of those lately.  Sometimes you need something a little more cheerful when you are celebrating a special someone's life.  That's were this card comes in.  This card totally fits her.  Vibrant and full of fun.  I know her family will appreciate the cheerful colors and flowers. 

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Best Thoughts, Thoughtful Branches
Paper: assorted old (don't know the names) DSP, White, Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Regal Rose, Old Olive
Accessories: flower punch, Layering Circle Thinlits, pearls

Thanks for taking a peek! 
I hope you'll join us a HSS this week!

  1. Beautiful sympathy card. Your friend will appreciate it. I love the dimension of the card and your use of dsp. Yes, I too have lots of paper stashed. Great personal challenge to use it. That also is one of mine. Thanks for being part of HSS design team!
