Deepest Sympathy {Pemberly}

When I made this card, the day was overcast and rainy.  It makes for a cozy afternoon and maybe the deary skies led me to make a sympathy card.  I tend to steer clear of dark colors for sympathy cards, but at the same time I wouldn't go overly bright.  Enter the Pemberly papers.  Perfect colors!

I tried something new on this card.  I used an X-acto knife to cut portions of the B&T and then popped the pieces up with foam tape.

I think if I had a sewing machine set up I would have tried some stitching on this one.  It just seems like it would have worked here.  

I also chose a larger size card.  I think most people usually like to write something special in a sympathy card so I left it blank and open.

See you soon,
