Anyway, Jen's sketch this week is for a square card. I kept mine rectangle because I need to post this card away and I don't know what it's like in the US, but posting square cards here in NZ is pretty expensive!
Unfortunately I have need of a sympathy card for an ex-workmate who lost his father-in-law. I wanted to keep my card somber and masculine so came up with this.
I used a Crumb Cake card base and the Mocha Morning Specialty DSP. I love this sentiment from Verve and it is my go-to sympathy stamp now. I wanted to put some embellishments other than the ribbon but didn't have anything gold apart from sequins and thought that would look a bit too celebratory which is not what this card's about. In the end, I left it pretty plain.
I'm also entering this in Heather's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. DTGD14HousesBuildofCards
