Thinking of You Sympathy Card

Hello blogging friends!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and if you went out shopping for Black Friday I hope you found some great deals!  I have been off and away from the computer for a couple of days.  My husband has been on vacation this past week and with the holidays we had some family from out of town so it was nice to get a little break.  The past few days we have had a lot of really great family time, relaxing and yummy food.  But now I guess it's time to get back to reality lol.

Since I have been away for a couple of days I haven't done any creating.  But I do have a card to share that I made a while back.  I make all of the cards for different co-workers of my husband's and not too long ago I had to make a sympathy card so I thought I would share it today.

I know this is a sympathy card but I love the simplicity of the layout and I think it could be used for several different cards just by changing the sentiment.  I used  S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A and E3D-004 Basket Weave with Metallic Bronze cardstock to create the embossed background.  Then I lightly sanded the metallic paper to reveal the black core of the paper.  Next I used S6-006 Branching Out and a smaller die template from the S6-001 5x7 Matting Basics A to create a couple of layers and the sentiment on the card.

To finish off the card I added some WOC flowers, pearls and metal corner accents.

Just a quick little post today.  
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
