Simple Sympathy

Sadly, I needed a simple sympathy card for a friend who buried his mother just this week. So I needed it to be a little masculine...no ribbon or bows, and I needed it to be fairly quick. I'm working on some things for a special promotion we're having next week. (More about that tomorrow.)
I turned to my two "go to" stamp sets for sympathy. The main image on the front is JustRite's Thinking of You set. I used Onyx Black Versafine to stamp on the patterned paper, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The leaves were colored with Prismacolor Pencils, and a White Opaque Pen was used to color the flower.

I used my new Spellbinders Labels Five Nestailities for the background layer. The pearls are Kaiser Craft Pewter Pearls .



The sentiment on the inside is from my other "go to" sympathy set. It's from Impression Obsession's Sympathy Sentiments clear stamp set.

All the designer paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Everafter Paper Kit . The cardstock is Birchtone Prismatics medium and dark, and Candle Glow Prismatics dark.

I'm quickly approaching 200,000 hits on my blog. Hmmmm....maybe I should be looking for some blog candy to give away soon, huh? Be sure to check back to see what I come up with! :-)

I hope you're all having a fabulous holiday weekend. I will be back tomorrow morning with something new. Until then...
