With Sympathy

Hello!  I always look forward to Make-It-Monday's from Papertrey Ink!  Love the videos and the challenges they present.  For today I thought I would combine the colors of Kraft, Light Plum and Plum from CR84FN with MIM's callenge to make a Sympathy card.   


To start I die cut the tag from Fillable Frames #9 from the ledger paper in BasicGrey's Basic 6x6 Kraft pad.  Adhered them to a Rustic Cream card base.  I took the silhouette images from Life and stamped them in two different purple inks.


Using True Black ink, I stamped my sentiment and added a few purple rhinestones.


Lastly, I tied on some Rustic Twine.

Here are the inspirational colors:


I hope you enjoyed, thank you for stopping by!
