Deepest Sympathy...MM#302 & CTD#251

Hello! I'm back with my second post today! I'm using the sketch from Mojo Mondays #302 and the colors from Color Throwdown #251:

Here's another angle:

...and the inside:

The inspiration:

I made the main panel by smearing broken china and peeled paint DI on my craft mat, spritzing some water, then laying the panel in the mess. Once dry, I tore the edge of some scrap paper, covered most of the panel with it and dabbed rich cocoa on the edge to make the 'land'. Then I stamped the trees. Instead of ribbon, I broke out my Sew Easy to make that border. (Love it!) I added the eagle sticker, then I adhered all the panels, using foam squares under the brown panel. I decided that this was going to be a sympathy card (yeah, we all need them) so I used this beautiful sentiment and finished with Deepest Sympathy under it.

So that's all for now. The fur baby wants a walk now, and I can't deny him that. (or anything!) LOL! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day! TGIF!!
