Last week when I was finishing up cards I needed for my projects I started to use some of this DP from Basic Grey's Kioshi paper pad. (This is one of the prettiest paper pads I've ever seen.) I ended up not using the paper (it was the right side of this sheet which was only stripes). I set this left over aside and it landed on top of the yellow Bazzil Basic Swiss Dots that I ended up using as the card base.
So it was sitting there and it just looked like it needed to be assembled into a card.
I grabbed it and the card base and started looking at what else I could use for this card. I had already decided that I needed to make some more sympathy cards and I wanted to keep it somewhat toned down, but I also don't think sympathy cards have to be somber. I used a scrap of Kiwi Metallic cover from ANW Crestwood for my first layer and then a piece of chocolate brown for the next layer. I dug around in my stash and found this variegated green ribbon and then stamped the sentiment from PaperTrey's Through the Trees in Memento Rich Cocoa on another scrap of green from the Kioshi pad.
I like how it turned out what do you think?
