Gold Sympathy

Stamps: He is risen! (Gina K. Designs)
Card Stock: Fabriano note cards, Gold (PTI)
Ink: Antique Linen, Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: A Muse Twinkle Sticker, Gold ribbon (PTI)

Life is busy at home, but I wanted to be sure and post this before I sent it off. I used my 'He is risen' set from Gina K. Designs, and kept things simple. The card stock is Fabriano (from Starlit Studio), and Gold (from PaperTrey Ink). I liked the soft shimmer of the gold ink from my Brilliance Galaxy Gold better than my Encore!, so that's what I used here. The bling is from A Muse, and the ribbon is from PaperTrey Ink.

My DH is going to a rescue shelter today to check out a dog we found at Petfinder. If all goes well, we may have an addition to the family by later today. I'm nervous about it, and hope that the dog is a great fit with the family.

Thanks for your visit today!!
