CAS(E) this sketch! #16

I needed some sympathy cards in my stash of cards, I find these ones very hard to make at any time let alone when you really need to have one.. When I saw the sketch this week from Karolyn Loncon at Case this sketch. I knew it was the perfect one for the image that I wanted to use.. 
I did a bit of water coloring and if you follow my blog you will know how rare it is that I actually water color or color anything, but I did like the soft way this stamped image looked water colored.  The image is a stamp set from Stampin'up 'Echoes of kindness'.  I water colored it in Wisteria Wonder and a Tim Holtz distess ink, Spun sugar, such a pretty soft pink. 

So here is my card...

I would also like to welcome as new followers to my blog Kaz and Kay.  Hope you enjoy having a pop around my blog and having a peek at what I do..

Have a great day 
Sandy :) 


  1. Such a delicate card and I love the embossing.

  2. I agree it's hard to make sympathy cards - I needed some recently and it's not easy to make them under pressure. I do love this one you've made - delicate and beautiful

  3. Beautiful, what a great idea and so good to work in advance.


  4. Beautifully serene sympathy card - definitely a good idea to have some on hand before you need them. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  5. Sandy this is such a pretty card - the light colouring really suits the sympathetic theme and I think that it has the exact balance of colour and white. Saw it on MIM.
