MelJen's Challenge. It is to use a circle and a square in the same card. I don't have any sympathy cards so I thought this would be a good card for that. I love this little dandilion mouse by MelJen's designs and it has always been a memory maker for me when I blow the seeds off to begin anew somewhere else. I know that most people hate dandilions, but they are still beautiful to me and a picture of strength! Plus who can resist blowing dandilions fuzzies into the wind? I added some sparkle to the dandilion and sponged some brown ink around the image to soften the white. I used a scallop circle template from About.com for behind the image. The sentiment is one from Dee's Designs that I loved. I think it's just perfect for a sympanthy. I just recieved Gina K's paper piercing templates in the mail this week and I was wanting to try them out. They work great!
