I wanted to make her something extra special since we are in the floral industry and she loves gardens and nature. I am loving all the new layer elements you can do with your Gypsy, so I just pulled it out and voila! I am so proud of myself that I welded this just the way it came out. (the best part is it didn't take me long at all, I guess 'cuz I didn't over analyze it, I just did it, lol!)
The tree is from Tinkerbell (who knew!), the aperture and frame are from George and the card base is from Plantin Schoolbook. I find I use the PS cart quite a bit for a card base, particularly this one because I like the stitched effect. The stamp is from M's and the circle stamped edge is a Cuttlebug die. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch that I layered. There are several areas with rhinestones on the butterflies that are on the ribbon. Oh and the card is inked with Tim Holtz Antique Linen. Inside there is a rub on sentiment "With Sympathy". I received some sympathy rub ons in the mystery box I ordered from My Sentiments Exactly back in March and it came in handy on this card. Pat is not what you call a glitzy girl and likes things understated so I'm sure she will love this card.

The background paper is My Mind's Eye Home Glitter Book. It's funny but I find I use K&Company papers a lot but I must have really liked this paper pad by My Minds' Eye because when I was redoing my craft room I found 2 packs of this paper! Guess I better start using it, lol.
The stamp is #99520 by Inkadinkado. I really love the sentiments in this set. I used Zing metallic copper to emboss the stamp so I would have the right colors for the challenge plus I thought it went nicely with all the other embossing. The image was then colored in with gel pens.
The rest was finished with Tim Holtz distress inks, some orange brads and ribbon from American crafts Elements, Uptown Orange. I love how these colors fit the sentiment. Hope you find some inspiration!
