My stash of sympathy cards has dwindled down, so when I saw the Cards in Envy challenge was "white on white," I decided to add some cards to my stash. I used a Cuttlebug Geometric Rings ef for the background, adding a Darice Ornate Oblong Frame die cut for the middle portion, which I embossed with a SU! square lattice ef. The center oval is part of the Ornate Frame set. I die cut some MB prim poppies and put them inside the small oval, adding a silver-embossed sympathy sentiment (SU!) and tied a piece of sheer ribbon to the bottom. I love the soft look of white on white for sympathy cards, so I may have to make a few more.
I'm also going to enter this into the Words2CraftBy challenge which is to base your card on these words of inspiration - "The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings." I may have a twisted sense of what this quote represents, but losing a loved one is a new beginning to learn to live life differently.
Thanks for stopping by and do make it a great week ahead!
