SFYTT July - Sympathy

Happy Hump Day!  I've had a hard time getting the time to write this post up!  I was also running out of time to get my card done for the Sketch For You To Try July Challenge - but I made it!

I actually had the main image done for about two weeks, but it sat on my desk, sat and sat some more until I decided to cut part of the image off to match the sketch.  I also came across the Catered Crop "Washi's Up" challenge to use washi tape and thank goodness that Cheryl enabled me to get some so I could play along!

I embossed the Penny Black image in white powder, then used some Distress Inks to color the background.  I added a Hero Arts plaid stamp over that image and then used my Nestie to cut it out and added a scalloped Nestie behind that.

My washi tape is the chevron patterned that I laid on top of navy cardstock and then embossed a panel w/ my Cuttlebug folder. I finished off the card with a PTI sentiment.  And - yes - I tried sewing again! Not TOO bad, but I REALLY need to practice more!!!

Here's the sketch - you still have a few more days to enter!!

Have a great day!!
Thanks for your visit!

Your stitching looks fabulous and that central image is gorgeous. I don't know how to make a card unless I color in the image but you always nail these CAS cards everytime. Beautifully done!

Maria, the colors on this card are gorgeous! I really love the light plaid background with the white embossed image. Beautiful! Check out that washi! I love the way you used it to accent your card.

How beautiful! Such a great take on that sketch! Love how you used the washi tape and love the image. the layered die cuts and the washed background are just fabulous. Really love the subtle look of the grid overlay stamping. A simple thing that adds so much visual interest to the image. :)

Wonderful color combination Maria! It just pulls you into the design!! Great background elements too that add to the visual effect of the card, but do not detract from you beautiful focal point!
