Between work & loosing our internet connection, I'm behind again on reading blogs. Don't think I've forgotten you! Comcast man got us back up & running in time to enter my PTI MIM stamped border card. You see sympathy cards in every style, but I'm only comfortable giving ones that are simple with little embellishment. A stamped border works perfectly for my style. I used my favorite PTI Turning A New Leaf set, but this time I used 3 of the smaller images I don't think I've ever inked. My PTI inks are Limeade Ice, Simply Chartreuse & Harvest Gold. The sentiment from PTI Through The Trees is stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate on vellum. I discovered that Brilliance really does completely dry if you give it time. Cream twill adds a bit of texture to finish it off. Have to say, I love how this card came out & plan to use this design with other colors, images & sentiments. My 5th entry in SSS Wednesday Anything Goes.
Edited to Add: Thanks to Holly, I'll add this to a new to me challenge, Loves Rubberstamps.
