thinking of you sugar nellie and papertake

I finished this one yesterday and never got a chance to take pictures of it.
I got my Gorjuss #2 stamp set and when I had seen the sneak previews I knew how I wanted to use this stamp and here it is.
I have followed the sketch from Papertake-weekly challenge blog which is idea for what I wanted to create.
I just love this sugar nellie stamp and thought it is idea for a sympathy card, especially for when a little one is taken away. I wanted to make it unfussy but give it an elegant feel and I personally love it.
The paper is by K&co which I have edged with a gold pad. The wings on the image have gold mica powder added.
Card recipe:

Stamp: Sugar Nellies Gorjuss set 2
Paper: K&co
Sentiment: Studio g
Image coloured with copic pens.

I thought I would share another stamp that I had made from Scrapmagasinet this is the on the back of the card.
Thank you for stopping by, please take the time to leave a comment so I can visit your blog x x

Hi Jakki, this card is beautiful, you've let the image speak for itself. I thought of a sympathy card too, or to let someone know you're thinking of them. Beautiful tones you have used. Thank you for letting me know where you get your name stamps from. Hugs Dawn Marie.xx
