Sympathy Rose

Once again I am without my laptop due to a dead power cord!  So I'm working in the coldest room of the house on the PC now - sorry for being late this morning!

Last week's Wednesday Stock Up on Occasions Challenge in the Kitchen Sink Stamps Forum was to use one of the sketches from the Friday Sketch Challenge and made sympathy cards.  Sadly, I do need a few of those so I took the challenge and here is my card.

 I used 3 Step Hearts & Roses from Kitchen Sink Stamps for my card.  It's been a while since I inked up this set and I had forgotten how gorgeous that rose is!  After stamping the rose, I masked it with some awesome masking sheets that I think Maria is planning on carrying in the store soon!  They come in flat sheets so they are much easier to use than Eclipse tape!  After I had the rose and leaves masked I stamped over them using the large script background from Multi-Step Letters from the Past.  I love the look this gives!  The sentiment is from the same set.

The sketch is from week 1 of the sketch challenges.  I'm pretty happy with the result of this card.  Be sure to check out all the various challenges you can play along with in the new KSS Forum and visit the rest of the Crew today for more inspiration!
