In a bind

Here is another non-standard sympathy card (I'm on a roll):
When I first downloaded this corset way back when, I had no idea what I would ever do with such a thing, but my sentiment on the inside starts, "If you are ever in a bind..." which adds a little levity without diminishing the seriousness of the situation.  Anyway, I added a little string lacing on the corset, and used liquid applique for for the "lace trim" on the top

I am really liking this "It gets better" stamp.

Wow you can pack a lot of challenges into a really cute card. I love the touch of green on the corner and how the entire image seems to pop off the black background. Very striking!

Great card! I would have never thought to use that image this way. Way to think outside the box!

Thank you for playing along with us this week at Phindy's Place and hope to see you again!! :)

Love the corset image and the little flourish in the corner! I also like that it's a little "left of center" in regards to your typical sympathy card.

Thanks for joining Amber's Craft and Stuffs first Challenge!
