Die Cut Dreams Challenge #106 Sympathy

Thank you so much to everyone who played in our White only challenge over the last 2 weeks your entries were totally stunning - please visit the Die Cut Dreams Challenge blog to see who one and the top picks.

So, onto the new challenge here at Die Cut Dreams
and this time the challenge is:
(Not cards most of us would choose to make but let's face it we all need one at some point!)
Closing date 29 January 2012 : 12:00 Midday (GMT)
This weeks Prize
(Kindly donated by the lovely Susie Sugar)

I decided to finally make use of a CDrom I bought ages ago - Me To You. The images are so cute and although this was not meant to be a sympathy image I think it works perfectly.

and here is a closeup

trying to show the layers in the decoupage. The only other thing I have added is some distress ink around the edges of the die cuts.

I look forward to seeing your creations.

Please check out my team mates for some more fabulous inspiration - their links are on my left sidebar.
