Happy Thursday! I am extremely excited to announce that I made the Pretty Palette Design Team over at My Time Made Easy!!! YAHOOOOOO!

For this sympathy card, I used digital paper from Grammy’s Pretty Patterns paper pack, and created the tag using elements from the Fine Finish Digital Image Set. After manipulating the focal image in Gimp, I printed it onto a transparency sheet and heat set the ink with my heat tool. I then cut it out and adhered it to the blue frame, which was cut out using my Cricut. I inked the edges with Moonlight White pigment ink to soften it a bit and then popped it up over a white piece of card stock.I cut the flower with the Cricut and inked up the edges with Sky and White Moonlight pigment inks. I added the little pink flower button and pearl to the middle and then glued it to the blue bow. The ribbon is CTMH Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon, which I coloured with an Ice Blue Copic marker. I love the way this card turned out.
You may be wondering why I chose a sympathy card for my first MTME post as a DT member. This is supposed to be a happy occasion right? Well, unfortunately, I made this with someone in mind, who was a huge musical influence on me when I was a young teen. He happened to pass away right after I found out I made the DT. There have been a lot of great memories and mixed feelings flowing around my nervous system for the last little while so I channeled them into this card. There truly are no words to express my gratitude for the memories and experiences I have from that time in my life. R.I.P. Mr Murphy. You will always be in our hearts.
Hope you have a wonderful day everyone. Take the time to smell the roses and tell someone you love them. Until next time happy crafting!
