Siempre en nuestros corazones

To celebrate the Day of the Dead I have a card featuring the lovely new Dia De Los Muertos Betty from Simply B Stamps.

I wanted my card to have the cheerful aspect of Dia De Los Muertos that seeks to celebrate life rather than mourn death while still being somewhat muted in keeping with the usual tradition of sympathy cards.  The beautiful papers from BoBunny and Lili of the Valley I think worked to create that blend.

To make up my card I followed the current sketch over at Die Sketchtanten and used some beautiful dies to add elegance to the circle and rectangle elements.  The sentiment comes with the stamp and I printed it using a shadow effect although the purple I picked looked lighter on screen so it’s a bit hard to see the black shadowing.

Over at Fairytale Stampers they have a use something new challenge going on, my image is new (released today) and the beautiful lilac paper is new from a Lili of the Valley pad that arrived just this week.  I’m also entering my card in the current challenge at Love to Scrap where the theme is dots, which I have in the lovely BoBunny paper.
