Sympathy

Hello on a Monday evening. Hope your week got off to a good start. Ours did...our daughter is visiting for a few days, so definitely started off our week great! This evening we had family over for a belated birthday cake for DH...we were waiting until DD could be here with us for the occasion. His birthday is Income Tax Day!!! Here is another sympathy card made for a dear relative who has just lost her brother. I used the Sizzix folder (Circles,Leaves& Diamonds) to emboss the vellum overlay, then the teal cardstock. Adhered these together, used the Spellbinders scalloped oval, and the S/Binder Cross (2012). The scalloped oval and cross are both popped up. I had some pretty lace, so adhered that to the side to hide the adhesive which shows through the vellum. I need to find some adhesive that doesn't show through vellum. Any brand suggestions? The sentiment was diecut with a smaller S/binder and distressed with the Evergreen Distress ink, using the Ranger distressing sponge tool. A few pearls were added for some decoration. I will be entering this into Pixies Snippets Playground.http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/pixies-crafty-snippets-challenge-number_14.html
