CCC #216 ~ With Sympathy

Happy autumn! Sure doesn't feel like the first day of fall for us with a high of 88 today. What's up with that? I have a sympathy card to share for this week's CASology challenge. Their cue word is frame. I'm not in need of a sympathy card, thanks be to God. So we'll let this one be for the loss of another summer!


I've had this stamped and embossed frame in my possession for years. I don't recall where it came from, perhaps a class or a borrowed stamp. But it was calling my name to be used in this challenge. I added three PTI Pretty Peony blooms, one die cut and popped up. The sentiment is one that I won from Great Impressions. I added just a few Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Silver Sequins (4mm & 6mm) to pull everything together. I love the way this card turned out, so elegant!


Have a wonderful day friends and thanks for visiting~ Lisa

I hear you, girl! I am so done with the heat and humidity - bring on the fall! It's extra humid tonight with the approach of Hurricane Karl (luckily only a Category 1). Should be passing by about 50 miles offshore around 4am. Hopefully it'll cool off a bit after he passes!
As for your card - what a stunner! That frame is gorgeous and complements the flowers perfectly. Really beautiful and elegant (and I'm glad to hear you're not in need of one right now). Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
