Roses of Sympathy

I made this card for Saturday's Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast - I was inspired by this lovely Rose Paper by Julie Comstock.

It reminded me of this rose paper I had by Authentique - although it doesn't have a blue background

Unfortunately, I was needing to replenish my stash of Sympathy cards - so that is the sentiment I used on my card.  It was such a clean and simple design - I made 4 of them while I had all the supplies out on my work table!

I used Mega Mat Stack dies from PTI and a scallop punch from SU.  The framed floral paper die cut is adhered over the striped paper with foam tape.

DH and I are spending time in the yard raking again today -  hopefully for the last time this fall !!!

Stamps: Stampin Up - Close as a Memory
Paper: Vintage Cream, Smokey Shadow - PTI, DP Authentique Bundle Collection - Uncommon
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: foam tape, Mega Stack 3 Dies - PTI, scallop edge punch - SU

Loving this card, it's simplicity is perfect for a sympathy card. I always find it hard to think of something suitable.

Very pretty sympathy card. So sad that we need to have them in stock.

So many of our friends are losing their parents now, I would rather have one in stock than try to make one at the last minute when I am feeling too sad to create.
