Horizon Sympathy - Stampin' Up! On the Horizon

   Unfortunately I've had to make a handful of sympathy cards in the last 2 weeks.  My creativity goes right out the window when faced with having to make a card to acknowledge a family's grief.  The New Horizons DSP and coordinating stamp and die set, On the Horizon made this sad task a bit easier this week.


I'm sharing this one over at the Alphabet Challenge which is on letter 'T' for trees.  The pretty tree silhouette stamps was a good match for this scene.

  I let the DSP do all the hard work and just added the trees and birds in black ink and then in the foreground the grass is stamped in Old Olive. 

  I die cut some grass out of another sheet of the DSP as well as the fencing in Basic White.  I layered them along the bottom part of the card and added some of the new Pebbles Enamel Shapes.  The sentiment is from Many Messages and is stamped in Misty Moonlight.  I had a bit of rough twine in my scraps and wound it around the end  for a bit of texture.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
