Sympathy Card



This card isn't for anything that has happened lately I'm just trying to build up a stash of cards to have on hand. Everytime I need a card it seems like a last minute ordeal and then I don't have time to make one soooooo I thought a big variety might help me out...and they don't go bad (like cupcakes...as though sweets would set around that long...hehehe) so hopefully I won't have to use this type of card for a long long long time!

Oh and this was my first time hand-stitching a card (I used faux stitching before) and good grief is that harder than I thought!! Making things straight, lining up holes, not poking my finger with the needle...LOL! And it takes some patience!!

I am entering it into the following challenges:

Stamp TV STVTC29 - Sewing
Pennys Challenge #5 - Pearls (I used two black pearls...one in the middle of each Prima flower)
The Pink Elephant Challenge #31 - colors (red, black, yellow and white)
The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #57 - birds
Digital Delights #6 - Sketch
(Sorry this is a few days late...I followed this sketch and then forgot which one it was when I went to post...LOL! I guess that is what I get for trying to combine so many challenges!)

Good idea to have the stash of cards especially sympathy ones cause to be truthful if you need one of those you don't usually feel like making it - too upset.
