What a day here…we woke up to sleet & ice.  My poor flowers which finally bloomed over the weekend were flopped over this morning 🙁


Tonight’s card wasn’t an easy one to make. Sympathy cards never are but when it’s going to a male, I find it even harder.  I found a few challenges to help me make it – the embossing challenge at Sweet Stamps and the sketch at Atlantic Hearts.


Card 10 - April2014 SU Simply Sketched 1


I went to my go-to Stampin’ Up! supplies, the square lattice embossing folder and Simply Sketched hostess stamp set. The color combination I used is Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Sahara Sand. It was a color challenge from SCS last week. I thought it was a nice, subtle palette for a sympathy card.


Here is the sketch~
