Waltzingmouse Saturday Sketch - Roses of Sympathy

Can it be Saturday again already??  AND a long weekend here in the US with Columbus Day on Monday??!!   I have so much stamping to do for various deadlines -  but I HAVE to take some time to go off and do something with DH Kent -  everything in moderation - right?!

So I have a card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch to share with you today -   here is Claire's sketch:
It's a great one isn't it??! 

And here is a sympathy card I created using the sketch.  Purple seems to be a good card for sympathy - not too bright and cheery and not too somber - don't you think?
I used one of the text background stamps from Text it on the purple panel.  The lovely roses and leaves are from Roses in Bloom - and the sentiment is from Frame It.  I popped up the roses panel with foam tape so the leaves are under the panel.  Everything is stamped with Imperial Purple ink accept for the sentiment which is black.

How about joining us in the sketch challenge this week - you could win a WMS stamp set of choice!  Check it all out on the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.

And don't forget - the WMS Design team will be starting Previews of the October Release on Wed October 12th so I hope you'll stop by to see what wonderful Christmas designs Claire has created for us!!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Text It, Roses in Bloom, Frame It.
Paper:  White, Ripe Avocado, Plum Pudding - PTI
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Imperial Purple
Accessories: Foam tape, yellow Stickles.

Beautiful!!! I come back to that stamp set (the roses) over and over and over! I am using them for my wedding thank you notes . . .

This card is perfect. The text and colors and the openness of the flowers - I love how you placed them on the page, too. Thanks as ALWAYS for the inspiration, Julia - you are the best!

This really is a wonderful sympathy card, love the texty background, and the roses look fab uncoloured in purple.
