Sympathy Sketch

Sadly, I needed a sympathy card.  And the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! looked like a good place to start.


Here's the sketch   

I used the perfect colors from the Paper Players Challenge



Edited to add that I'm going to take this over to the CCEE Stampers challenge to do a Sympathy card.

And here's the card...


The door's getting ready to close at the sketch challenge so I'd better skedaddle and get over there.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers, Teeny, Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Basic Gray
Paper:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Basic Grey, Snippets of Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight
Other:  Beautiful Wings Embosslit

I'm so glad you stopped by.  See you soon.

Enjoy!

This is so deftly done, Bonnie! I love that you framed your perfect design on a tall card which quiets it and makes it "feel" right. If that made any sense. I'm sorry you needed a sympathy card.
