Here For You

So, this is my first time using the Here For You set from "There She Goes" and I LOVE IT!! It is full of fabulous sayings and images that make sympathy cards, which are normally a chore for me, very easy and heartfelt. The sentiments say just the right things, at least, I think they do. I made this card for today's sketch challenge over at SCS. I stamped my bird and branch image on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip ink and layered it with Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip. The first DP(the WW) is from the retired Afternoon Tea DSP and the Chocolate polkadots is from the Bella Rose pack. I did a lot of piercing, used some vanilla brads from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts, brown gingham from Joanns and cream wide grosgrain from SU. I did lightly sponge the edges on the main image to give the image some depth. That is it for me for now...my nephew is sleeping, so I am trying to hurry!! I realized that I haven't posted any pictures of him recently, so maybe later today I can get him to lay still long enough to let me take a photo!!
