With Sympathy



I have made this sympathy card for a friend whose Mom has just died, she lived a full and long life, and so while I wanted to make a sombre card I also wanted it be a pretty card. Using the sketch at Mojo Monday I've put this card together. I have to say I'm pleased with how it's turned out and I think it is a pretty card.
I have brayered and masked the background with Blushing Bride and Basic Grey. I'm also entering this card in at the Masking Challenge over at Jac Inks.

Colour Combo: Blushing Bride, Basic Grey, Basic Black.
Stamp Sets: Echoes of Kindness(retired), Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Other Deatils: Organza Ribbon(hand dyed), Vellum- dry embossed for bottom edging, Pearls, Shimmer Paint and smooch added to flowers for some subtle sparklyness.

This is a lovely card Debi. I think you achieved exactly what you set out to do. The pearls along the bottom are also a lovely touch.
