DL.ART May Linky

Happy Monday and first day of May!! Wow, the year is flying by!! A new month means a new monthly linky at DL.ART. The theme is anything goes. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off at the DLART shop.

I had a request for a sympathy card in the colors of blue and purple, so I put these two together. The papers are from Craft & You.

The doily is a Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily. I cut it in half and offset it under the center panel. A Memory Box Adelaide Stem was adhered beneath the butterfly, a Fiskars punch.

This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Lavender from the Spring Bundle #1.

And this is Baby Blue from the Baby Bundle.

 The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Tucked beneath are Memory Box Tender Leaves and Chloe Stems.

The angel is from a mold.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes

Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Anything Goes projects!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  20. Hello sweetie
    The person who gets your sympathy card surey will immediately feel the love that went into the making of this masterpiece. I love the combination of purple and blue, especially for this occasion. Purple it the colour of the Crown Chakra and Blue the one of the Third Eye Chakra so it is a wonderful sign.
