With Sympathy

Happy Tuesday!! Just a quick post this AM before I head off to work. This card is for the Just us Girls challenge....the challenge was to simply make a card using dry embossing, which I JUST love by the way :)There was also a "twist" to it to make it a Birthday card. As you can tell I didn't use the "twist" Unfortunately I needed a Sympathy card for my Dear friend Ilean who just lost someone she was very close to. So wanted to send her some hugs!!! This is my card:

All paper & stamp set is PTI. I use a Cuttlebub Embossing folder , MS punch, Flowers & ribbon from my never ending stash & that's it!!! Very quick & easy & to the point!!

Hope you are all finalizing your Thanksgiving plans :) I for one have not!!! that is my project for this evening!! Make it a good one!!!!!

Gwen, this is absolutely lovely!!!! I love that CB folder and the colors you chose are just gorgeous. Such an elegant feel. Wow!

Yes, very elegant! Love your colors and that embossing folder is truly a must-have fav of mine! Perfect card for the solemn occasion. Sadly my repair part for my die cutter/embosser did not come, so I'm still not able to do the challenge yet.

Very beautiful card Gwen. I like how you cut out the Sympathy sentiment & showcased it right in the center of your flower. Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls - I hope you join us Saturday for an all new color challenge!
