A couple of sympathy cards

Hi everyone.  Hope your enjoying the weekend.  It is absolutely beautiful here in SW Ontario.
Sun is shining and the breeze is just perfect.  I was doing some yard work this afternoon, then sat down under the gazebo and did some reading.  It's nice just to do not much of anything, just to take time for yourself.  Then I thought, hmmmm I should go a post a card I did last week, so here I am.

Although it's not the type of card we like to make, but I never seem to have enough of them in my stash.  These ones were very easy to whip up.  

The first one is in blue/green tones:

supplies used:

Hero Arts stamp - leafy vines, SU embossing folder, brilliance tri-colour ink pad - peacock, silk ribbon, flower from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls, sentiment from PTI- everyday classics

and the second one is in pink/peach/yellow tones:

supplies used:

Hero Arts stamp - leafy vines, SU embossing folder, brillance tri-colour ink pad- Aurora, silk ribbon, pearls,  sentiment- PTI-willow. (looks like my pearl on the bow slipped a bit, didn't notice when I took the picture, but have fixed it).

I have another brilliance tri colour ink pad, I think I will give that colour a try as well. It's called twilight (pink/mauve tones).

Well, that's about it for me for this time.  Thanks for stopping by.  See you again real soon.  Next up will be a cute thank you card for a dog lover!  Stay tuned.

Ohhhhhhh, can you hear my sigh from clear down here in Oregon? These are gorgeous! So utterly brilliant in their simplicity. Speaking of brilliance, LOVE those Brilliance tricolor pads. Haven't seen those. I have some Spectrum and Ranger Big 'n Juicy, but these colors are so beautifully blended and perfect. I especially love the colors on your first card. Absolutely gorgeous stamp, too. Just YUM!
