WOYWW #213

Happy Wednesday Peeps and welcome to WOYWW #213.
I have been making Sympathy cards and using a cutting file for the wings. My card has a lilac backing (this colour is the one used in Greece for a death, so we never put it on cards, presents etc otherwise). I have embossed the backing card using 'Timeless' embossing folder from the Romantique Collection by Couture Creations.
After cutting the two pairs of wings, I hand embossed them with small dots and attached them with silicone and added a small lilac rose. The base card is cream.





Looky in the background too.... a fabbo packet of Pencils I picked up yesterday for just 51 cents... cool bargain eh ?!!!  Fantastic for scribbling stuff down like I'm always doing.... and if Hubs steals one for his workshop... as he always does too !!!!


Now, is you don't know what WOYWW ... What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday .....is all about then pop over to Julia's Blog at THE STAMPING GROUND and find out all about it :-)
Thank you for visiting and have a great day :-D

** Sorry - I always forget to put what products I used.
I have been asked about the Wings. They are a GSD cutting file that is part of a Swan Wedding card by Tina Fitch and can be found on the CAMEO CREATIONS CD available from Forever Memories For You HERE

  4. Fab card, and intersting about how different cultures use different colours..we do use a deep 'royal' purple in church, I quite like the lilac for sympathy, it's gentle.
