Today I am playing along with the Global Design Project #138 sketch.  I needed some sympathy cards and this sketch gave me a starting point.

Global Design Project #138Click HERE to link see all the design team cards. Great inspiration for this sketch.

I went with monochrome colors for a soft and sweet sympathy card. I like Whisper White or Very Vanilla for sympathy cards. Every once and awhile I may use a light pink or blue. Soft and simple are my usual go to. It is always hard to make sympathy cards, so I do like to have a few in reserve. Do you keep them in your stash or do you like to create for each occasion?

Here is my Sympathy card:

 Flourishing Phrases sympathy card Stampin' Up Global Design Project Ginny Harrell

All Very Vanilla with a tiny bit of Crumb Cake for an accent. I am glad this set, Flourishing Phrases will be in the new catalog. It is perfect for weddings, sympathy, and birthdays. Love a set that is multipurpose.

Don’t forget the Occasions Catalog is ending May 31 along with all the retiring products. Click HERE to see the retiring products.

Did you watch the Royal Wedding today? It was lovely. I so enjoyed seeing all the pretty colors, flowers and the wedding couple seemed so happy. I wish them all the best. I might have to take a nap after getting up so early though!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Saturday!
