With Sympathy

Just a quick blog entry for me today, dealing with 4 kids and the Easter Holiday is playing havok with my crafty time! The sun is shining... bit chilly but there's a load of laundry on the line, the beds are stripped and I've got a chocka to do list for today! First on the list... my entry for this week's Tsunami Rose Designs Wednesday Challenge!

This week it is 'Anything Goes' and you do not have to use Tsunami Rose products!
As a member of the design team, this week we are working with the gorgeous 'Damask Madam' paper pack which you can buy here.

For my entry i've used two of the gorgeous papers - a harlequin print and a rose print. I've added some ivory lace ribbon, paper roses and a black organza double bow. I've also had my first try of adding beading to a project!!! I used my hot glue gun for this and will need more practice - its a bit wonky when you get close up, but on a mantlepeice it looks not half as bad!!!

I stamped the sentiment straight onto the paper and only chose this to help widen the scope of my stash - most of the time I use a Happy Birthday/Thinking of You generic type message, but I thought a Sympathy card would be good to have!

Here's all the info you need for Tsunami Rose and you still have some time to enter this week's challenge!
