When Someone You Love Becomes A Memory {MFTWSC31}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It's week 31 of our WSC Getting Sketchy. We have another fabulous sketch for you this MFTWSC31.  Another awesome sketch indeed!

For my card today, I wanted a more elegant feel as opposed to my normal preferance for "cute".  I pulled out some DELISH papers from Authentique, Uncommom.  You may have noticed that I am a tad bit obsessed with Authentique lately.

I stamped this beautiful sentiment from the new Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy from My Favorite Things, "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure" in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of Choice Buttercream cardstock and cut it with Circle Nestabilities.  I layered it onto a piece of cardstock cut with the larger die in the Decorative Doily Duo Die-Namics.  LOVE how elegant this doily is.

I added tons of machine stitching as well as a black pearl in each corner.  I also added a gorgeous grey ribbon and bow created with The Bow Easy.  The grey of the ribbon is the same grey as the lighter color in the patterned that.

For the inside, I added more of the same patterned paper and a panel with another sentiment, "You are in my thoughts", also from Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used today:
