Floral Sympathy Card

Hey everyone...It's Sonya from Sonya's Paper Trail.  The project I am sharing today is inspired by a Pinterest find.  I didn't copy the card so much, as I took a few elements of the card I found and made them work for what I had on hand. 

 Check it out:

I liked the wide banner cut from the original card and I liked it paired with an oval.  When I put my oval over the banner, it just didn't look right, so I offset the banner to the left and really liked the result.  Here's a tip....I really, really like this layout and plan to use it a lot going forward.  I saved the banner and ovals as a .studio file to cut out with my Cameo going forward.  I started a new file folder of card layouts like this one, so that when I am in need of a quick card, I can go back to a "tried and true" layout that I know I like.  

For this card, the patterned papers are by Echo Park For the Record 2.  The stamps are by My Craft Spot, as is the jute twine.  I added three yellow pearls, to bring out the pretty yellow tones in the floral paper.  

I hope you have a fantastic day and are able to do something creative!!
