I've often thought that brown is kind of a forgotten color in card making. It seems to me that brown is a soft and warming color.
Think of that favorite teddy bear in your childhood. That comfortable blanket or that snugly robe or slippers that just wrap around you.
When it comes to a sympathy card I'd like the recipient to feel a dose of comfort as soon as they open this card. My photo doesn't do justice to this card since the flower has a slightly green cast to it and I couldn't get it adjusted properly. The mat is a fuzzy textured card stock that matches perfectly with one of the stripes in the DP. The flower is matched to another stripe in the DP also.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
