Beach Sympathy

Hi Everybody! 
Hope you all had a nice long holiday weekend!  The last 5 days have been very busy for me and I didn't get a chance to share my card for last week's DRS Blog Challenge until now. 

My goal for completing their challenge to use punches was to come up with a layout to mass produce some sympathy cards. Below is the layout I came up with however it turned out to be more involved than I thought and this was the only one I made.

I really like the focal image used on this card. I heat embossed the Sea Grass (128L) on glossy cardstick and sponged each part of it with the appropriate color ink. Then it was matted with kraft cardstock. The One Line Heartfelt Condolences was stamped on a banner and the edges were inked with yellow ink before matting it with kraft cardstock. The sentiment and image were adhered in placed as shown on a light blue card front that was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. A decorative corner punch was used in the upper left corner and a yellow brad was added there as well.  The cardfront was then adhered to an A2 cardstock base made from kraft cardstock.  The finishing touch was adding some punched butterflies that were decorated with coordinating rhinestones.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the details for the paper punch challenge HERE.
