Sympathy in Scarlet and Gray

This is my second post today so keep scrolling down!

Papertrey's Make It Monday challenge is to use scor-tape to add glitter strips.  My first instinct was to go bright and cheerful and super-glittery, but our church card racks desperately need sympathy cards, so I decided to challenge myself.  The glitter is subtle, but it IS there running along the Smokey Shadow panel just before the scallops.  I add a little bit more to the center of the flower to bring it all together.

  • Stamps: Papertrey In Bloom, Out on the Limb (sentiment)
  • Ink: Papertrey Ripe Avocado, black
  • Paper: Papertrey Smokey Shadow, Scarlet Jewel, Ripe Avocado
  • Accessories: Papertrey Mat Stack 1 die and Large Scallop Border die, Cuttlebug dot folder, 1/8" scor-tape, Stampendous Gunmetal Glitter
  • Challenges: Papertrey Make It Monday ,  Splitcoast Ways To Use It: use gray as a neutral, Pals Paper Arts: scallops
