Sympathy In Midnight Muse

Unfortunately in the last week I have needed to make a couple of sympathy cards, this is one of them.
The sketch is very basic and everyone uses it but I felt it suited this card.  There isn't any ribbon on it a) because I didn't have any and b) because I felt for a male sympathy it wasn't needed.
The colours are Midnight Muse and Whisper White.  I fussy cut the Apothecary Art stamp so the space between the Midnight Muse Label framelit and the stamped image wasn't huge.  I think it looks nicer that way.

I've been away at a craft retreat in Brisbane.  It was the best camp.  We had a ball. I'm sorry, I don't have any pictures, no time...between eating, crafting and sleeping, the weekend just flew.

Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy your day.

Leigh, this new colour is so good for a sympathy card for a male. Very nice - it must have been hard for you not to use some kind of ribbon on a card LOL!!
