Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are really difficult I think.  You don't want them too fussy or 'shouting out' for attention.  For this card I chose deep tones that were restful on the eye.  As you can see, it's very simple, the daisy stamp is quite an old one from Penny Black called 'Blush' inked with Marvy Blending Blocks Shades of Sunset and Shades of Olive dye pads. The little 'with sympathy' embossed in green is on a small piece of white card which  has the corners punched.

I used the cuttlebug to give some texture to the background pieces. All the pieces have the same corner shapes to unify the whole thing and  are mounted  onto a black A4 card scored in half.

I hope you like it, and thanks for coming by :)
