Sympathy Card

A sympathy card I created for the husband of a work associate who recently passed away after. The idea for this card was taken from a creation by Debbie Olson, who posted this amazing card using SU!'s new Basic Grey paper. I didn't have any of the SU! paper but I did manage to find a beautiful piece of dark grey, lightly textured (think linen) paper in my stash that worked perfectly.

The background cardstock and plain oval are white cardstock, which I recently purchased from Papertreyink. Wonderful weight and feel to this cardstock, perfect for stamping, I highly recommend it. The background is stamped with the SU! Baroque Motifs set, using Basic Black ink. I then added a few flowers (from the same set) in a light pink chalk ink. The scalloped oval is punched with one of my now beloved Marvy punches and the sentiment was colored using Basic Grey and Basic Black markers. Everything is held together with a piece of black grosgrain ribbon and two black brads. I really liked the end result - hope you do too! :-)

Happy Sunday!
