Sympathy in Blue

Hello everyone! Sadly, I needed a couple of sympathy cards. I never look forward to making these but I'm glad I can add my own thoughts or sentiments to the family. One card I saw on line caught my eye and I wanted to make a similar one. 

I began with creating a sponged circle in blue on my focal panel. Next I stamped the floral branch in black ink and embossed it with clear EP.  My sentiment was also stamped in black ink and embossed. I added a blue ribbon as a final touch. This was then popped onto a blue card base with dimensionals.

Here are the products used:

Card Stock:  GKD white, PTI Spring Rain
Stamps:  SU Thoughts and Prayers, PTI Daily Designs Sentiments
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, GKD Powder Blue
Other:  Clear EP, ribbon, adhesive, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you'll come back to see more card making projects.
Remember to make it a great day!

Your card is perfect for a sympathy card. None of us likes to need them, but when necessary, they are comforting to the family in need. I love your blue circle with the black branch across it. Great design and colors.
