Sympathy Card ~ Pumpkin Spice Design Team call Entry

Good Evening, my crafty friends! I have been busy crafting the last few days and still have a few items on my list to get done.

This morning my father-in-law called and informed us that my husband's cousin had past away. My husband wasn't close to this cousin and I had never met him but we wanted to send his cousin's parents a sympathy card. I was trying to decide on a design and was thinking about what I wanted to do when I happened upon Courts Crafts. Court was sharing about a few design team calls and so I decided I would give the Pumpkin Spice design team call a try. I had to get to this quickly as the deadline is tomorrow!

Pumpkin Spice is an online paper crafting store with discounted prices. This was the first time I have looked through thier store and I must say the that the prices are mush less than others. I plan on purchasing a few things in the near future. You should check them out. You will not be disappointed.

The requirements for the design team call was to make a new project using 2 lines of paper that they had listed.

I wanted a soft and pretty look to my card so I went with soft colors and papers from 2 of my favorite paper lines, My Mind's Eye and Echo Park.

Here is a close up of the beautiful petal pink crinkle ribbon and pearls.

Here is a list of products I used to create this card:

My Mind's Eye ~ Where the Heart Is (green polka dots and soft yellow)
Echo Park ~ Life is Good (the two shades of pink on the flower)
Solid color is DCWV
Cricut cartridges ~ A Child's Year for the oval and scalloped oval ; Cindy Loo for the flower and scalloped border.
Ranger Distress Ink ~ Tea Dye to ink around all the edges
Petal Pink Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder ~ Swiss Dots
Bo Bunny ~ Crazy Love Jewels ( or in this case pearls :) )
Other miscellaneous items: ATG, foam tape, glue gun, and piercing tool

Don't forget to check out Pumpkin Spice. You will love their prices and their products!

Thanks for stopping and Happy Crafting!!
