Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #444

Sadly, it seems like I'm knowing more and more people who are passing away. Is it because I'm "old"? One of my co-workers passed away unexpectedly a couple of weekends ago. Before that, it was one of my neighbours who passed away a couple of months ago. I'm finding that I'm needing more Sympathy cards than I did before. 

We have a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!

This challenge was a great one for a sympathy card. Here's my card

I remember my mom telling me that she preferred a simple card when shopping for sympathy cards. I feel that the clean and simple style really works for sympathy cards. For my card, I made a circle mask using a Sizzix circle die. For the  background, I used Stampin' Up's French Script background stamp. My background stamp is one of those on a wooden block. I found it easiest to place the wooden block on my desk, stamp facing up. I inked up the stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then placed the white card panel with the mask in place and rubbed to help transfer the ink. I added the silhouette of little flowers using Technique Tuesday's Growing Wild stamp set. I carefully removed the mask and then stamped the sentiment using Clear Besotted's Many Mini Messages stamp set. I trimmed the panel down slightly so that I could mat with a black A2 card panel. To complete the card, I adhered the black panel to a white card base.

We'd love to see your "any occasion" card in our gallery this next fortnight.
