**For my blogoversary giveaway
please go here**
The challenge this week
at Dutch Dare is Clean & Simple
If you are like me, that is a challenge because
I love layers, and lots of lace and lots
embellishments. I held back as much as I could.
Please join us this week and show us
your version of Clean and Simple.
Sympathy cards are very difficult to make.
I had a bunch to make so in order not to get
too hung up on it, I found if I either went for what paper I was in the mood for, or what style I
knew the recipient liked, I was able to keep going.
I know it is not traditional, but, I get stuck
if I think about it too much. I apologize if it is offensive. I always try to make my cards respectful
for the occasion and the person receiving them.
I have received comments about my color choices
not being appropriate for sympathy cards
again, I apologize!
I saw this card a few months ago, on Fiona's
blog and fell in love with it, so I had to
case this beauty.
