Make It Mondays: Sympathy



Unfortunately, I needed to make a sympathy card this week, so I drew some inspiration from this week's Make It Monday video.

I decided to use some cool colors, aqua mist and smokey shadow, and do a classic embossed background. The stamp for the background comes from Waltzingmoue Stamps' Faux Fun. (May be my favorite stamp ever!) The focal image was created also by heat embossing the frame from Mat Stack 1 Collection and the sentiment from Think Big Favorites.

I stamped an additional phrase on the inside of the card which comes from Healing Touch Sentiments.
