So, here are my Sympathy cards. I really like the simple layout. I also like the swirls on the colored cardstock, a nice subtle touch. If you have not used Papertrey Ink's satin ribbon....you just have to know how wonderful this ribbon is to tie!! A delight!! See that sentiment. Of all the sympathy sentiments I have (quite a few I discovered), this one is the one I keep coming back to again and again!! It is from the Birds of a Feather stamp set sold by Papertrey Ink. And look at that....some tearing on my card, a technique I think can add a lot of texture and interest to a card but I rarely think to incorporate
And here is the second card I created using all of the colors together.
I really like the twill and button embellishment that I added to go with the baby boat theme! I can't help but feel like this card is not finished...I think it needs something under the aqua water...maybe a strip of yellow?? A strip of black?? a piece of Lavender Moon ribbon?? What do you think?? I think I will play around with it a bit and see what I like best.
Now, off to see what the Loonie ladies have created with this color combo:
