Fresh Cuts Swap
I don't think I showed this card I made for a swap a bit ago. I had joined a Sympathy swap over on Utah Divas International (UDI). I had just gotten this set from SU and wanted to use it.

The card is pretty self explanatory. I sponged all the edges, except the card base and the Night of Navy card stock, with Night of Navy ink. I went with a blue them because it I wanted it to be soothing and have a relaxed feel to it. Sympathy cards are never easy to make for me - I went with the Thinking of You sentiment because then you could use the card for other events beside Sympathy.

All Supplies SU:
Stamps: Fresh Cuts, Sincere Salutations
CS: WW, Brocade Blue, Night of Navy
Ink: Brocade Blue, Night of Navy
Other: Ticket Corner Punch, Stamping Sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals, Navy Grosgrain Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope to be able to share my exciting news with everyone soon. Just getting a few things 'ironed' out and the ok before doing so!!
