For a Sad Occasion…

It’s always hard for me to do a sympathy card.  I guess part of it is because I hate to think the person has died, and for the grief of the family. 

 Here’s one of a couple that I did for a dear family member’s son.  I’m not that great doing plain and simple, but since this is for a male I felt it would work.  The stamp and sentiment is heat embossed and the paper is actually a burgundy color, not purple.  I also used a technique by Gina K. Designs on embossing the gold edged paper.  

I’m entering this is the following challenges:

Just Keep on Creating – anything
The Paper Shelter – anything
Amusing Challenge – heat embossing
Pattie’s Creations Design – male
Crafting For All Seasons - for men
Do You Stack Up - masculine

Thanks for stopping by,

I'm sorry you had a sad occasion to make a card for...:( But your card is perfect for it, muted without being too gloomy, colorful without being too cheerful. The gold embossing is classy. Great job!
