MONDAY Morning Again-Sad but part of life I know I will be needing this

Good Morning again Everyone,
Sad but true, I know I will be needing some of these this year so I am going to make a few for future use.
I tried to keep the card somewhat monochromatic with a tone on tone, with  ink matching the paper . I used PTI melon berry with Jenny Bowlin chicken feed ink.  The flower stamp is from Autumn leaves
I used vintage cream for the top label  the sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo.  It is placed on top of another  label, cut from My Minds Eye, a Beautiful life. I used stickles star dust to place a little dot in the center of the flower.
I think it is a very pretty sympathy card (MIM #16)without being dreary.

  4. It is so pretty. It is unfortunate that we "need" to make these cards, but on a positive note, they will brighten someone on a dark day. :O)

  6. Beautiful card Diana. Love the monochromatic colors. This is one card I do not like to make. Making them for the stash is a good idea...that I can do. Sorry to hear you have to use one.

    Take care!

  7. Great card and love your sentiment and the way you layered it. Unfortunately, I can't get ahead with my sympathy stash. My goal for 2012 is to get cards made in advance that are usable. I hate rushing around at the last minute because I don't have an appropriate card made.

  9. This is such a lovely card - simple and elegant, and just the way a sympathy card should be. I find sympathy cards the most difficult to make. Thanks for sharing your idea.

  19. These are hard to make, but using a cheerful color helps, doesn't it? I think the recipient will appreciate it as well. Great job on the challenge. Happy New Year. :-)
