Layered Vellum Sympathy

There were several fabulous techniques at Summer Card Camp 2 today but my favorite was the layered vellum.  I pulled out all my old Wildflower stamps and went to town. 



LOVE how it turned out although the picture isn't quite doing that purple justice.  Colors used are Smokey Plum, Bamboo, Cocoa, and Honey (CTMH).  The sentiment is from Peddler's Pack and is one I pull out often.  The ribbon was something I picked out of a clearance bin at Michael's a few years ago. 

The hardest part was keeping my layers together to sew and keep them from shifting.

Luckily I don't have any need for a sympathy card at the moment, but I find it useful to have some on hand in case they are too hard to make in the moment.

Until next time,
Becca
