With Sympathy

Posted by Picasa
Good Morning! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far. I was in need of a sympathy card for a former coworker of my husband's. He recently lost his wife suddenly. I wanted a simple card since it was for a male. When I saw the MIM for Papertrey ink, I thought this would help me in making a card. I used Mat Stack #5 and did the reverse masking with Spring Rain ink. The image is from Botanical Silhoutees anniversary set. I embossed the dandilions with white filigree embossing powder. The base of the card is Rustic Cream CS. I layered a mat to give it a little dimension. Very simple but I am pleased with the way it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by,
Have a great day,

What a great sympathy card. Subtle and soft. Really appropriate. I just got my anniverdary set and can't wait to play with it.
