A couple weeks ago I missed a challenge over at The Lounge so I'm going back and making it up.  Did you know you could do that?  Yep, you have until the end of the month to enter for a chance to win an Our Craft Lounge stamp set of your choice.  This particular challenge (OCL48) was to use OCL stamps and two different ribbons or trims.  Easy enough, huh?  A co-worker asked if I could make a sympathy card for her so I grabbed Garden Thoughts.  I've had the set for a while but haven't used it.  It is a great set that offers both spring and sympathy stamps.  Now that it's sitting on my desk, I might just have to stamp and color the other images before I put it away!

I started by cutting out the rectangle with a Nestie then stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White and coloring it with Copic markers.  The layers are Basic Black, Coordinations and Colorbok.  The ribbon and button were from my stash but the lilac/white twine is from The Twinery.  My order was delayed a couple days but they have excellent customer service and kept me informed the whole way.  I love doing business with companies like that!  I just noticed their new colors have come out so I know what I'll be ordering next!  *wink*

Beautiful Tam. Love the image. Really don't like having to make sympathy cards (but seems like I'm needing more of them as I get older. Imagine that). You're coloring choices often surprise me and always work. This is beautiful. I'm sure your friend will appreciate it as well. G
